Bituach Le'umi Pay for Flying Toulouse Victims Home


Director-General Esther Dominissini of the Bituach Le'umi National Insurance Institute announced, Tuesday morning, that she will resolve the argument surrounding the burial in Israel of the four Jews murdered in Monday's attack on the Otzar Hatorah synagogue in Toulouse.

At first, the institute had said it had a difficulty funding the flying of the coffin carrying Rabbi Yonatan Sandler because he was not officially a resident of Israel.
