The opportunity to research and write about the life and work of Eliezer Rieger was indeed an exciting one. He was an educator of great breadth and depth who lived during an important period in the development of the Yishuv in Palestine. He was active at a time when Hebrew education in Palestine and Israel was being formulated, and he made a significant contribution to its development. His interests in education were quite varied. During his lifetime he served as a teacher, textbook writer, school administrator, inspector of schools, researcher, professor of education, head of the Hebrew University Department of Education, educational historian, curriculum formulator, educational innovator and Director-General of the Ministry of Education and Culture to list but a few of his educational activities.
