      Increased Aid for Holocaust Survivors Goes into Effect


      The Knesset Finance Committee and Treasurer Yair Lapid approved, Monday morning, orders implementing a 50-million-shekel increase in yearly assistance for Holocaust survivors. The updated benefits will be reflected in the next payment to the survivors.

      The increase is being applied to the basic payment made to all the survivors, as well as special benefits, including a social layer and benefits to the spouse of a deceased survivor.
