IN ISRAEL, the Central Bureau of Statistics reports that two of every five children go to bed hungry. And according to the National Insurance Institute, even though 80% of single mothers work, fully one of every four such mothers and their children live in poverty. In Jerusalem, for instance, more than half of all children live below the poverty line.
