Christianity studies introduced into Israeli schools
Do you think Jewish students in Israel should be able to study the life of Jesus in school?
According to an October 7th article in Ynetnews, “Starting from this school year, high school students will be able to take matriculation exam in ‘Christian religion.’ Program currently open for Arab students only, but Education Ministry says will consider allowing Jewish pupils to take it as well.”
Israel has a compulsory religion studies program, whereby Jewish students are expected to study Judaism, Muslim students Islam and Arab Christians, Christianity.
