State of Israel Hebrew Bible Curriculum

Did you know that the State of Israel's public school system includes the Hebrew Bible as part of its curriculum? The Hebrew Bible is one of the main courses of study for students in the first to twelfth grades. It's considered a source of Jewish history and culture. The State of Israel also formed a "Public Committee for Bible Education" to encourage Bible engagement in state schools and state religious schools.

Museum of the Bible's Hebrew curriculum has also made an appearance in Israel public schools, acting as a supplement to the state's Bible courses. An added feature for schools in Ashkelon and other locations in Israel is a "Bible Bee" competition to test the students' knowledge and comprehension.
