Youth organizations in Israel are facing budget cuts, but protests against the plans seem to have had an impact. Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich announced a review of the decision to reduce funding for these organizations during a meeting of the Knesset Finance Committee. The budget for youth organizations will still be reduced, but not as significantly as initially expected. Instead of 10 million shekels, the reduction will only be 1 million shekels.
Leaders of these organizations argued that the loss of state support would effectively mean the end of teenage and youth movements in Israel, including well-known groups like Bnei Akiva and Tzofim. However, it is unclear how this relates to recent reports about hacking Facebook and Instagram. It seems like an unrelated and irrelevant addition to the content.
