all the arts in its survey of Israeli culture.
One aspect of cultural activity of particular importance in
Israel is education at all levels and this is reflected in the large
number of periodicals dealing with the various apects of Israeli
education. The two leading educational journals are published
by the Histadrut ha-Morim be-Erets Yisrael (association of Is-
raeli teachers):
H ed ha-Hinukh,
devoted to educational and pro-
fessional matters, and
concerned with pedagogy and
educational psychology. The government, both at the national
and municipal level, publishes many periodicals dealing with
education, while the major kibbuts movements and the His-
tadrut all publish in this field. Many academic disciplines also
have their own journals, such as music

level, a great many periodicals are published. Many of these
are, of course, official publications such as catalogues and reg-

(Technion-Israel Institute of Technology) and
(Weizmann Institute of Science) are particularly noteworthy in
this respect. Finally, mention should be made of the many period-

sity community, the students. In addition to student literary and
political journals, the student organizations at the various uni-
versities issue journals which deal with university affairs from
their viewpoint. Such publications exist on the campuses of Heb-
rew University (

), Bar-Ilan University
(Ba t-Ko l)
, Haifa
