Funding for Yeshiva Students from Abroad to End


The Ministry of Education ordered on Monday to stop the funding for yeshiva students who come from outside of Israel. The funding will be halted starting next year, according to a letter sent by the Ministry to the heads of the yeshivas.

The letter indicated that Education Minister Shai Piron (Yesh Atid) had decided to amend the funding provided by the Ministry to Torah-centered institutions, so that funding for students from abroad will be cut by 30% by the end of 2013 and will be cancelled completely the following year.
