Knesset Approves Annual Increase for Survivors
A law proposal to increase support for Holocaust survivors passed its preliminary reading in the Knesset Wednesday. 43 MKs voted in favor of the legislation and none opposed it.
The MK Merav Michaeli (Labor) proposal doubles the budget that Hashava, The Company for Location and Restitution of Holocaust Victims’ Assets, allocates to aiding Israeli holocaust survivors to at least NIS 200 million per year.
