MK Orbach: ‘The Journey is Long… We Will Keep Pushing.'

MK Uri Orbach (Jewish Home) applauds the Finance Minister’s proposal to add 1 billion Shekels to Israeli Holocaust survivors’ stipends, effective immediately.

Orbach stated that the move, “Coincides with current gestures in benefit of the country’s senior citizens, but on must still remember that most of the poor seniors are not Holocaust survivors but rather limited-income citizens… For now this is a good start, but the long and correct. We will continue to push for what we want and need.”
