Hundreds of Israelis have had their dental work subsidized by President Moshe Katsav. Officials in Katsav’s office said Tuesday that payments were made from a presidential charity fund to some 1,150 needy Israelis last year, and that around half of them used the money to cover dental treatment. The fund’s total annual outlay is estimated to be around $600,000.
