Report for 2021 of the employment arm of the Ministry of Economy and Industry: The employment rate of ultra-Orthodox and Arab women in the fourth quarter of 2021 was high compared to 2019, on the eve of the corona crisis, and even reached the employment target set by the government for 2030 - 81%.

After quite a few delays, the "Shark" rig arrived in Israel and infuriated the Lebanese. The reason for this lies in the conflict over the economic maritime border between Israel and Lebanon, an area with the potential to find gas reserves that could dramatically improve the precarious economic situation of the land of cedars. In order to protect the rig, last week the Economics Committee approved a no-go zone at a distance of about 500 meters from the outer edge of the rig, and within a radius of 1,500 meters around the location of the rig. In Israel, they intend to produce gas from a...

The results of the reading and reading comprehension tests conducted in the current school year among some 90,000 fourth-graders are very worrying. Despite the experience of the Ministry of Education, it is impossible to hold on to the corona crisis and the long closures as an excuse for the dismal situation. The closures hurt students, as did the political upheavals, frequent changes of ministers, the lack of a state budget and the general neglect of the field of education by previous governments. But the findings published today are reminiscent in severity of those obtained in the...
