Jerusalem after-school activities were closed on Sunday afternoon as workers went on strike to protest against salary reductions and worsening conditions recently brought about by the implementation of a new reform.

The Trajtenberg Committee, appointed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu following the summer 2011 social justice protests, decided to lower the cost of after-school programs in order to ease the situation of working parents. The reform was implemented last month in Jerusalem as part of a pilot for the project, requested by the municipality.
