Home Schooling in Isreal

Homeschooling In Israel
Most homeschooling families base their actions legally on the Basic Law: Human Dignity and Liberty and on supreme court rulings. Other families ask the Ministry of Education for exemption from the compulsory schooling law (and need to renew the exemption every year).

In many areas in Israel there are regular meetings of homeschoolers for social opportunities, common activities,
and mutual support.
Country-wide connection of the homeschooling community is supported by the Beofen-Tiv'ee ["naturally" in Hebrew] newsletter, conferences, and virtual community at
