Haredi yeshivas in Jerusalem, Beit Shemesh and Beitar Illit were forging Israeli identification cards in a fraud scheme in which they received millions of Shekels, police reported on Sunday.

Police suspected that the fraud has been ongoing for years. They said that the yeshivas forged the identity documents in order to inflate the number of students enrolled in their Jewish learning institutions, thereby receiving more money from the Education Ministry.
