Israel’s Education System – A Road Map for North American Funders

Monday, February 22, 2021, 12:30pm – 1:45pm EST

What is the structure of the Israeli education system? What are the sources of funding? How does the Israeli education system rank in comparison to other OECD countries?

Join us as Prof. Dan Ben-David, President of the Shoresh Institution provides answers to these and other questions as we look to address the challenges and opportunities within the system. Together we will learn about the role of philanthropy in funding education in Israel and hear from Danna Azrieli of the Azrieli Foundation on their models of interventions, lessons learned, and how they are moving the needle in closing the gaps in Israeli society through education.

For North American funders wishing to help improve the situation, this session provides a road map to Israel's complex educational system.

About the Shoresh Institution:

Shoresh is an independent socioeconomic policy research institution whose sole raison d’être is to identify the source, nature and scope of Israel’s internal root (shoresh) existential challenges. The Shoresh Institution provides evidence-based analyses – essential for strategic perspectives and transformative policies at the national level – to Israel’s leading policymakers and the general public to assist in moving the country towards a sustainable long-term trajectory that raises Israel’s living standards while reducing disparity among its citizens.
