The Ministry of Education started a public campaign this week calling for parents to join the ministry's textbook lending program, for which registration opened on Tuesday.

The campaign consists in an online video clip starring popular public figures such as comedian Tal Friedman, singer Kobi Oz, actress Michal Yannai, children’s star Michal Zafir and education expert Prof. Amos Rolider.

According to the decision of Education Minister Shai Piron, the textbook lending project will expand to about 500 new schools, which will bring the number of participating schools to 1800 establishments across the country
