Cultural Policy in Israel. Studies and Documents on Cultural Policies.
A survey of cultural policy in Israel, prepared for UNESCO, is one of a series of booklets to show how cultural policies are planned and implemented in various countries. The series provides a guide to these countries which have yet to establish cultural policies to help them profit from past experiences. The historical background of Israel's cultural policy, a factor which is felt to have affected both the population as a whole and the various branches of cultural life, is discussed in the introduction. The philosophy of cultural democracy which lies behind Israel's policy is explored and the administrative and financial structure of the Ministry of Education and Culture, founded in 1949, is discussed. Promotion, dissemination, and schools related to art are the topics of the next three chapters. Efforts in the areas of adult education and library services are then presented. The culture of minority communities and activities dealing with antiquities in Israel conclude the study. An appendix containing results of a survey of patterns of recreation and cultural needs in Israel is followed by a bibliography. (Author/KSM)
