Six members resign from Council for Higher Education

Six members of the Council for Higher Education announced their resignation on Sunday in the wake of a growing rift between members of academia and Education Minister Naftali Bennett, who also acts as head of the CHE.

 The resignations have effectively shut down the activity of the Council, which by law requires a minimum of 19 members to operate. 

The members who resigned included: Professor Moshe Maor from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Professor Yehudit Gal-Ezer from the Open University, Professor Eli Zeldov from the Weizmann Institute of Technology, Professor Fadia Nassar Abu-Alhiga from Tel Aviv University, Professor Chaya Kalcheim from the Hebrew University, and Professor Hagit Messer-Yaron from Tel Aviv University.
