Israel’s Education Ministry is allowing a Jewish educator to resume teaching after he was barred from Haifa schools for calling on teachers not to teach Yitzhak Rabin’s legacy or hold memorial services marking the former prime minister’s assassination. Prior to his reinstatement, Yisrael Shiran distributed a letter of clarification, condemning the assassination and saying the educators must differentiate between the moral aspects of the murder and the political elements of Rabin’s legacy.
