In light of the security situation, the Education Ministry has established a new aid office, to be headed by former Education Ministry director general Dalit Stauber, the ministry says in a message to workers.

In this new capacity, Stauber will oversee an effort to provide assistance to staff, students and parents who have been affected by the war with Hamas, including psychological services.

A parallel program for teachers is to be provided, managed jointly by the ministry and the Histadrut teachers union.

Schools have been closed since the weekend and will remain shut until Wednesday at least.
