C'tee OKs NIS 100,000 Grant to Reserves Orphans


The Knesset Labor, Welfare and Health Committee cleared for second and third readings, Tuesday, a bill to provide a one-time grant of 100,000 shekels (in installments of 50,000 shekels) to people whose fathers were killed in reserve duty and whose mother was dead.

Adopted and stepchildren are covered under the legislation. The benefit would be divided evenly among siblings.
