Army radio reported Sunday that tens of thousands of elderly Holocaust survivors residing in Israel are in desperate need of monetary support.

According to a report released Monday by the Foundation for the Benefit of Holocaust Victims, more than 120,000 survivors living in Israel have been supported by the foundation.



Most of the elderly survivors live off of less than 5,000 NIS a month.

Eliyahu Arye, 78, stated that the survivors do not have many more years to live. "Where is the government?" asks Arye. ""Lapid, let us live out the years we have left with a smile."
