Sharansky Calls for More Hebrew Ulpan Funding
Jewish Agency Chairman Natan Sharansky called for a two month extension in the funding of Hebrew ulpan classes. Ulpan is the word used for Hebrew classes which are offered for free to new immigrants. Due to lack of funding, the ulpan program may end. The Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Absorption also helped fund the ulpan program.
