Education is central to Jewish life.

The 'Shema', one of the most important Jewish payers, says, “you must teach your children carefully, when you're at home, when you're out, in the evening and in the morning.”

In order to take part in a service, all Jewish males have to learn to read Hebrew and a network of schools was set up over 2000 years ago. This also ensured that the Jewish tradition was passed on. Over time, this rich tradition - of learning, studying texts and debating their meaning closely - developed amongst Jews a real commitment to education.
