Bennett okays subsidies for yeshivas that teach Yiddish instead of English

Education Minister Naftali Bennett approves government subsidies for yeshivas that teach students Yiddish instead of English.

According to the temporary order he signed earlier this evening, Yiddish will now be considered “a second language” by the Education Ministry, and will therefore be eligible to get subsidies for up to 55 percent of the institution’s language budget.
