On Monday the Jerusalem Municipality’s Financial Support Committee is expected to approve the allocation of NIS 60-70m. from the city’s annual budget to aid the capital’s non-profit organizations.
According to city councilman Hanan Rubin (Jerusalem Awakening), who holds the city’s Young Adult Families and Students Portfolio, the infusion of money will benefit a spectrum of municipal services – ranging from homeless services, school renovations, sporting organizations and theater groups.
“This money will help all the non-profits in Jerusalem to keep up the good work they’re doing, and to develop and spread important services where they have not been available before,” said Hanan. The annual allocation is expected to be issued within the next few weeks.
