Jewish Agency chairman Ze'ev Bielski called on students Sunday not to carry out with a strike throughout universities and colleges planned after the Pessah holiday on Tuesday. "[The students] must give a chance to negotiation. The public must act responsibly and try to come to an agreement appropriate for all sides," said Bielski. According to Bielski, the Jewish Agency has contributed 60 million NIS to higher education in Israel. Student organizations demand a return to the conclusions of the Winograd Committee (which recommended a gradual lowering of tuition aimed at eventually achieving a 50% reduction in tuition). They also want the Shochat Committee, established to reexamine tuition prices, dismantled.
