Committee OKs Increased Aid for Holocaust Survivors


The Knesset Committee on Immigration, Absorption and the Diaspora approved for final readings, Monday, a government bill to increase monthly and annual financial support for Holocaust survivors.

Responding to concerns about the bill being tied up over committee jurisdictional disputes, Committee Chairman Yoel Razvozov said, "Fortunately we did not waste time and we're all working to hurry the measure in order to make things better for Holocaust survivors as quickly as possible."
