Education Ministry Makes September Yeshiva Payments


The Ministry of Education made budgetary transfers to yeshivas for September, Sunday, after Education Minister Gid'on Sa'ar signed revised procedures for support of the institutions. The funds were held up briefly by the Justice Ministry for lack of revised procedures, after the summer's expiration of the Tal Law on hareidi induction to the military, portions of which dealth with yeshiva funding.

The new procedures reflect the number of hours and days of study at the institutions receiving aid from the ministry. The funds should appear in the bank accounts of the yeshivas by Tuesday, which will help students receiving stipends with expenses they face ahead of next week's start of the fall holiday season.
