Textbooks in Israel are published in Israel by the Ministry of Education of Israel and other educational institutions.
The Ministry of Education of Israel defines the curriculum of schools in Israel and is in charge of the recruitment and training of teachers. Until recently, the Ministry of Education issued an approved list of schoolbooks, but this practice has been stopped on the grounds that Israel is a modern country and does not engage in censorship. The Ministry may disqualify textbooks containing prejudices and stereotypes in response to complaints from the public, a method described as "far more effective than censorship exerted by a civil servant".

“Do you not see that so long as society says woman has not brains enough to be a doctor, lawyer or minister, but has plenty to be a teacher, every man of you who condescends to teach, tacitly admits before all Israel and the sun that he has no more brains than a woman?”
—Susan B. Anthony (18201906)
“Instructing in cures, therapists always recommend that each case be individualized. If this advice is followed, one becomes persuaded that those means recommended in textbooks as the best, means perfectly appropriate for the template case, turn out to be completely unsuitable in individual cases.”
—Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (18601904)
