Cut Yeshiva Funds Transferred Today

Just a week after the Supreme Court ordered the freezing of February's funds to Yeshivot (Torah academies) where 18-20 year old boys who have had a postponed draft status study, the Ministry of Education has just now transferred an advance on the amount to the institutions.

Director of Religious Institutions at the Ministry of Education, Amos Tzayada, emphasized in a letter that "This is an advance payment, and cannot be seen as approval for support for 2014. Preliminary approval is subject to rules which state that the advance payment can be up to 20% of what was paid to the institution for 2013."
