MKs to Suggest National Plan to Help Holocaust Survivors


Finance Minister Yair Lapid and Minister of Welfare and Social Affairs Meir Cohen will present the ‘national plan to aid Holocaust survivors,’ which will distribute an additional billion Shekels annually among roughly 200,000 Israeli survivors, beginning in 2014.

Lapid and Cohen intend on the plan being completely fine-tuned within 30 days from the meeting slated to take place in 2 weeks, so that the next round of sessions in the Knesset will be able to hear and hopefully approve of it.
