Source: Rothschild Prize for Education
Every two years, Yad Hanadiv recognizes the crucial role teachers play in shaping the knowledge and attitudes of the next generation by awarding exceptional teachers the Rothschild Prize for Education in Memory of Max Rowe. The 2013 Max Rowe Prize will be awarded to teachers – at all levels and across all disciplines – who develop in their students the ability and commitment to practice deliberative and respectful discourse.
Nominations for the prize will be accepted from the public from November 18 to December 7, 2012. The sum to be awarded to the recipients is 160,000 NIS. The prize committee is headed by Prof. Amnon Rubinstein and includes public figures, academicians and educators.
Yad Hanadiv is dedicated to creating resources for advancing Israel as a healthy, vibrant, democratic society, committed to Jewish values and equal opportunity for the benefit of all its inhabitants, carrying forward the philanthropic tradition of the Rothschild family.
Yad Hanadiv acts in Israel on behalf of a number of Rothschild family philanthropic trusts, continuing a tradition of support for Jewish revival in Palestine begun by Baron Edmond de Rothschild in the second half of the 19th century. Established in its present form in 1958, the Foundation’s work has been guided over the years by a distinguished Advisory Committee - now by a Board of Trustees - under the leadership of members of the Rothschild family. With the assistance of the staff of Yad Hanadiv, the Foundation seeks innovative opportunities to address the needs of Israeli society.
