The budget for the Jewish Culture Division at the Education Ministry reached its peak in Bennett’s time

The Education Ministry’s budget for Jewish culture last year was NIS 218 million ($60,191,895), an all-time high, Haaretz reported on Saturday night.

The report said that in the last four years in which Naftali Bennett (New Right) served as Education Minister, the division’s budget had jumped by more than NIS 50 million ($13,805,481). Haaretz added that the Jewish Culture Department “is considered a central factor in the efforts to overthrow the educational system, funding dozens of organizations and associations that are affiliated with Religious Zionism and which operate in secular schools.”
