New Bill to Give a Day Off to Parents of Deceased Soldiers

The Knesset will soon consider a bill that would give workers whose family members died while serving in the IDF, or were killed in a terror attack, a day off from work with pay, on the anniversary of the soldier's death.

The bill, according to a report in Ma'ariv, is being sponsored by several MKs, in cooperation with the Yad L'Banim organization.
