Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon announced the grant during a special session hosted by the Knesset’s Labor, Welfare, and Health Committee, the Jerusalem Post reported.

Annual payments of NIS 3,600 ($923) will be provided to Jews who emigrated from Morocco, Iraq, and Algeria. Immigrants will also be exempt from paying prescription drugs.
