MK Rabbi Piron to Increase Interfaith Discussion Budget


Education Minister Rabbi Shai Piron visited the Fureidis village today (Thursday) in light of recent ‘price tag’ events. There he met with the local council head, as well as with Jewish and Palestinian-Arab high school students.

The MK told his audience that, “We are here today, to say that we will not allow such a distorted reality in which holy places are desecrated to take place in Israel.” The minister added that the ‘price tag’ events can be overthrown by means of holding interfaith meetings and by creating social relationships.

The MK said that the Education Ministry will enlarge its budget for interfaith meetings of Jewish and Palestinian Arab high school students by another million shekels.
