The Trajtenberg Committee for socioeconomic change presented its recommendations to the government and the public on Monday, outlining NIS 60 billion in budget allocations to address grievances raised by months of nationwide demonstrations for social justice.

Speaking at a press conference immediately after handing the report to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Prof. Manuel Trajtenberg said the committee worked around-the-clock for 50 days to complete what he called a “seemingly impossible task.”

He added that the report would not solve all of Israeli society’s problems, but that it would “mould strong foundations through which a more fair and just society will flourish.”
