Jewish Education as a Top Priority

Jewish Education in Study and Experience

Education Towards Humanistic Values



Pluralism and Solidarity

Learning Community



The TALI Education Fund (TEF) aims to endow Israeli pupils with a Jewish, Zionist and democratic education taught in an open atmosphere, sensitive to the spirit of the times, and based on the cooperation between parents and educators. This education aspires to shape a personality which embraces both Jewish tradition and general culture and to endow pupils with the desire and tools to confront and deal with contemporary existential issues facing the Jewish people.



Jewish Education as a Top Priority
The TALI school places the Jewish education of its students at the center of the school's experience and the allocation of its resources.

Jewish Education in Study and Experience
Imparting knowledge and skill and promoting creativity, which will enable pupils to forge a rich, modern and personal Jewish identity; encouraging the experiential aspects of Judaism, for example, the Jewish festivals, prayers, Kabbalat Shabbat and acts of charity; confronting the question of the status, the vital importance and the methods of relating Judaism to a modern Israeli society.

Education Towards Humanistic Values
Development of a rational and moral approach towards Jewish and universal values which emphasize respect for fellow human beings, equality between the sexes and respect for different world cultures.

Education for active civic engagement based on tolerance and on the equal obligations and rights of all citizens, out of respect for the law.

Education towards knowledge of the Land of Israel and the Jewish people in the past and present deriving from a sense of belonging and love, and emphasizing the centrality of the State of Israel in shaping the path of the Jewish people.

Pluralism and Solidarity
Education towards Jewish pluralism which derives from recognizing the value of a multitude of opinions and way of life, both within Judaism and outside it; development of a sense of kinship, fraternity and partnership between all sectors of the nation and strengthening the mutual responsibility between the Jewish people in Israel and the Diaspora, its different religious streams and different ethnic communities.

Learning Community
Encounter with the classic sources of Jewish tradition encompasses all sectors of the school's community, as reflected in the cooperation of all of its members in shaping the experiential aspects, the Jewish atmosphere and educational environment of the school.

Integration of all the varied sectors of the population into the TALI schools, out of an awareness of the importance of forging a unity through Jewish education.
