Zionist funding for yeshivas reaches new high ...$303 Million Dollars!!!!!!!!!!

Extra funds for yeshivas brings total level of subsidies to 1.17 billion shekels per year. That's $302 Million a Year ...

Yeshiva students
The Zionist State of Israel are the biggest supporters of Torah, unmatched in the entire history of the Jewish people! So how much did the Satmar Rebbe, R' Zalman Leib,  bring this past year?? Oh 5 Million..... 
Just a thought...

Public funding for religious institutions of higher learning reached new heights on Sunday, when the coalition approved an additional 48 million shekels ($12.4 million) for yeshivas.

With the injection of cash, the government’s funding of yeshivas broke the previous record, set just half a year ago, with a total of 1.17 billion shekels ($302 million) spent annually supporting the religious institutions.

The new level of funding represents a significant increase over the past few years. The previous all-time record was set this June, when government funding for yeshivas passed 1.119 billion shekels ($290 million). In real money terms, the increase was even greater, as the past six months have had an average inflation rate of negative 0.5%.

Before June, government spending for yeshivas peaked in 2011, with 1.032 billion shekels ($270 million).
But following cuts during Yair Lapid’s (Yesh Atid) term as Finance Minister, the budget for yeshivas fell to just 564 million shekels ($146 million) in 2014.

By the beginning of 2016, however, that figure had grown 74%, to 984 million shekels ($254 million). With the addition 48 million shekels ($12.4 million) allocated on Sunday, the total increase in the yeshiva budget from 2014 to 2016 stands at 107%, or more than double the level two years ago.
Much of the increase over the past two years stems from haredi coalition demands to increase funding for foreign yeshiva students studying in Israeli institutions.

While in the past such students received just 60% of the funding native Israeli students received, non-citizen yeshiva students now get 95% of the amount provided for Israelis. Many of these students, especially in the Religious Zionist sector, remain or return later to make their homes in Israel.
During Lapid’s term as Finance Minister from 2013 to 2014, a new requirement obligating foreign yeshiva students to participate in a special Education Ministry program in order to receive funding drastically reduced the number of students on the government rolls. Upon the new government’s formation, that requirement was dropped, and the number of students receiving funding has risen.

Separate from the budget allocated for yeshivas are the monthly stipends given to married yeshiva students. If approved, the stipends will add another 100 million shekels to the yeshiva budget, bringing the total to 1.27 billion shekels ($330) per year.

Torah study in Israel has blossomed, with the country having the largest number of yeshiva students in any country in the world, more than were in all of Europe before the Holocaust.

DIN, you might be better off just ignoring Satmar already. Treat them like a pimple on your tuches. They aint worth the aggravation.

wonder what does this shaven 3 headed lutvak calling himself rav dudka, yossie6123456 and aishkodesh have to say about this?

If they were just pimples you would just squeeze out the squalid Satmar secretions and be done with this canker cult.
But Satmar is not just one pimple. They are scores of thousands of pimples and they are a cancerous and dangerous plague on Klal Yisroel. Their hatred of Eretz Yisroel is all you need to know about them and their misogynistic perverted hashgacha. Their neighborhoods and villages are reminiscent of Sodom and may Hashem visit similar retribution on them.

And what do they get for it, rioting destroying property and hate.

Baruch Hashem Yisbarach that Torah is spreading and doing so well in Eretz Yisroel! It is unspeakably great!

P.S. You don't have to ruin this great Simcha, DIN, by criticizing Satmar in the meantime.... though thank you for doing it less this time....

And Abe, Chas V'Chalillah! Cursing them??? May Hashem never do anything like that!
