Jewish education is essential to the future of Israel, Education Minister Gideon Sa'ar (Likud) said on Tuesday.

"The key to our future is education, Jewish education. This is a shared challenge for Jews the world over. Jewish education – learning about our roots – is the source of our true strength to deal with all of the difficult problems and challenges that still stand in front of us."

Sa'ar's statements came during a speech at an education at the European Conference of Jewish Communities' European Jewish Education and Youth General Assembly in Paris.

During the speech, Sa'ar also vowed to launch a committee of Jewish educators from around the world to work on issues of Jewish education in Jerusalem.
