Dozens of English-speaking Bar-Ilan University students demonstrated in front of the university administration building on Monday, demanding rights promised to them as new olim.

Wielding signs with slogans like "We left our families, what more do you want?" and "What? I don't understand you," the students rallied after the administration raised the price of translating exams into English to NIS 285, and limited the translations to first-year students alone.

According to Rachel Sarafaz, the director of the Bar-Ilan ESC (English Speaking Community), a Student Union-sponsored group, test translations had been given to any student who made aliyah in recent years, and cost only NIS 50 per exam, but the price rose every year over the past four years.
