Rumanian Government Increases Subsidies to Jewish Hospitals, Schools Following Protests

The Rumanian Ministry of Finance announced yesterday that the government will grant Jewish schools, hospitals and cultural institutions 25,000,000,000 lei (nominally $165,000) during the coming fiscal year.

Earlier this month, the Ministry stated that it would only grant 8,000,000,000 ## The increase in subsidies resulted from protests by various Jewish organizations and leaders. Responsible Jewish circles consider the increase insufficient to provide for full programs for the institutions involved.
