Since Israel was established in 1948, the education system has played a major role in developing the Israeli identity. We will examine dominant discourses and debates pertaining to Israeli culture identity, such as the centrality of the Holocaust, security issues, minorities, religious education, role of literature in national narrative, the role of politics in citizenship education and contemporary debates over History education.
