Israeli Government to Give New Benefits to Holocaust Survivors

FSWC Reports:


Finance Minister Yair Lapid instructed to compare the conditions of Holocaust survivors who arrived to Israel after October 1953 to the conditions of survivors who arrived in the country prior to that date. Some NIS 300 million ($86.7 million) will be allocated to fund the new legislation.

Following the decision, the Finance Ministry will initiate legislation procedures that will include allocating the necessary sum to fund the 18,500 Holocaust survivors . The ministry is planning to move the bill to the Knesset's vote in 2014.
