The Jewish Agency for Israel on Tuesday said olim enrolled in summer semester programs at Israeli universities had not received stipends they are entitled to from the government.

JAFI Chairman Nathan Sharansky called on the Ministry of Absorption to respond to the allegations they had been receiving from "dozens of students" promptly. "I ask for your personal intervention in allocating funds to these students immediately," Sharnaksy wrote in a letter to Minister of Absorption Sofa Landver. "It is clear to me that your commitment to this issue will resolve it quickly and efficiently."

The Ministry of Absorption could not be reached for a response.
