Member of Knesset Gideon Sa’ar was appointed Minister of Education in the Netanyahu administration in March 2009. Since that time he has built a dynamic program requiring schoolchildren to visit Jerusalem three times spread across their 12 years in the Israeli school system. The program has more than doubled the annual number of schoolchildren visiting Israel’s capital from 200,000 to 500,000 under Sa’ar’s leadership. JewishPress.com brings you an exclusive interview with Minister Sa’ar speaking about bringing students to Jerusalem’s Mount of Olives.
