      Committee: Free Nursing Home Care for Survivors


      The Kneseet Labor, Welfare and Health Committee on Thursday authorized for its first reading a law that would provide free state-sponsored nursing home care for Holocaust survivors. Until now, fees for such care have been deducted from reparations payments.

      The law was proposed by MK Haim Katz (Likud), chairman of the Committee, and MK Rachel Adato (Kadima). The law will affect thousands of survivors, the two said.
