School Funding

Bielski has resisted calls from constituents to fund schools that fall outside of mainstream schemes. In 2011, local residents sought approval to establish a Ra'anana branch of the Pelech School as an alternative for girls to the city's beleaguered Amit "Renanim". He has been criticized by Rabbi Michael Melchior, a founder of Meitarim, a network of pluralistic Jewish schools in Israel that educate religious and secular students together, for his refusal to provide city funding to the local branch of the pluralistic school.WEB, Judy Lash Balint, An education revolution comes to Israel, 12 April 2012, Jerusalem, The Canadian Jewish News,weblink 20 September 2012, 12 April 2014,, live,
