Olim Live
In Poverty

Jerusalem (JTA) — One in
10 Israelis lives below the
poverty level and half of
them are children, according
to newly released govern-
ment statistics.
Among recent immigrants,
the poverty rate soars to a
record 34 percent, the Na-
tional Insurance Institute
says in a just- published
survey of 1991 figures in-
volved in social security pro-
grams.
Poverty-level incomes
were the lot of 562,000
Israelis in 1991, a 4 percent
rise over 1990. Of this
number, 234,000 were chil-
dren.
But the rise was lower
than the year before, when
poverty level incomes
registered a 14.6 increase
over 1989.
Government allocations
warded off an increase to as
much as 20 percent in the
number of those living below
the poverty line. A fourfold
rise occurred in this category
over the past decade, mak-
ing the rate in Israel the
highest among Western
countries.
Officials at the insurance
agency voiced hopes this
week that the Treasury
would resume payment of
allowances for first and se-
cond children in a family.
The allowances were
withdrawn by the previous
government, leaving alloca-
tions only for families with
three or more children.
In other economic news,
the government's $40 billion
state budget for 1993 passed
its first reading in the
Knesset by a comfortable 55-
43 majority, with one
abstention.
The government was
pleasantly surprised by the
supporting vote of Shmuel
Halpert in the opposition
United Torah Judaism, a
fervently Orthodox party
widely rumored to be an
eventual candidate for part-
nership in the governing co-
alition.
Knesset Member Dan
Tichon of the opposition
Likud bloc charged that the
vote resulted from a promise
given by the Treasury to
allocate $20 million for
yeshivot associated with
United Torah Judaism. The
charge was denied.
Finance Minister
Avraham Shohat promised
the sums, including alloca-
tions for building 300 new
classrooms in Arab schools,
would be added.
