As Purim approaches, thousands of Israeli children and families grapple with poverty
Ministers of Knesset returned on Monday from their 39-day Spring Recess to begin the Knesset’s Summer Session. Two special sessions were held during the break. Unless new elections are called, this year’s Summer Session will last less than three months, ending on July 25, 2012. The fifth sitting of the 18th Knesset will start on October 15, 2012, after an 81-day Fall Recess, if the Knesset completes its upcoming fourth sitting.
