Knesset approves extra $289 million for Holocaust survivors
The bill, initiated by Finance Minister Yair Lapid, recognizes survivors who immigrated after 1953 and those persecuted by Nazis but not imprisoned in camps.
The Knesset passed a bill Monday night to increase funding for Holocaust survivors by 1 billion shekels ($289 million) per year. This sum will be divided among the 20,000 survivors living in Israel.
