MK Kariv Welcomes Holocaust Survivor Assistance Bill


MK Yifat Kariv (Yesh Atid) welcomed on Monday the Knesset’s passing of a bill to increase assistance to Holocaust survivors, which was tabled by the head of her party, Finance Minister Yair Lapid.

“As of tonight, the survivors are a top priority,” she said, adding, “The State of Israel is taking responsibility for the first time and will work with the survivors to fulfill its obligation towards them.”

“I will continue to work towards relieving the unbearable loneliness and towards a dignified life for Holocaust survivors. This is a moral and ethical order, it is an imperative,” said Kariv.
