Cabinet to vote on increasing funding for Holocaust survivors
The minimum monthly allowance paid by the state to survivors would rise to 2,200 shekels, about $635.
The cabinet will vote this month to augment aid to Holocaust victims, including a 1-billion-shekel ($289 million) annual supplement from 2014 to be divided among the 200,000 survivors living in Israel.
