Erez Biton effect

Should cultural events involving Mizrahi heritage receive special budgets and support, or just be included in any cultural event, as an integrated way of emphasizing inclusiveness? This issue – evident during the aftermath of the recent report presented by poet Erez Biton to the Education Ministry on promoting Mizrahi culture and heritage – was raised earlier this week by city councilman Dov Kalmanovich (Bayit Yehudi). Kalmanovitch sent an urgent letter on the matter to the ministers of culture, sport and education, requesting an integrated approach to promoting inclusiveness, which he said is “the natural Israeli way to do it.”
