      Payments Early for Eid ul-Fitr

      Welfare Minister Moshe Kahlon (Likud) and Bituach Leumi (National Insurance Institute) head Professor Shlomo Mor-Yosef have decided to give monthly payments early in honor of the Muslim holiday of Eid ul-Fitr. Child payments and unemployment checks will both be sent before the holiday.

      The payments were to arrive on the 20th and 17th of the month, respectively, but instead will both arrive on the 16th.
