Some 1.77 million people live in poverty in Israel, of them more than 850,000 children, according to an “alternative poverty report” published by the non-profit organization.
The organization found in its 2010 study that 75% of impove…rished individuals in Israel forgo meals due to their financial situation, a 21% rise from 2009.
Moreover, 83% of children did not receive dental care and 22% of the poor confessed that they have had suicidal thoughts due to their economic status.
Latet works in coordination with 150 soup kitchens that aid 60,000 of 223,000 impoverished families – of them 530,000 children.
This is the eighth year that Latet has published this report, which portrays the situation on the ground from the testimonies of 520 non-governmental organizations
According to the National Insurance Institute report released on Monday: “In 2009, there were 435,100 families living below the poverty line, with 850,300 children among them, an increase from 783,600 children living below the poverty line in 2008A sharp increase in the number of Israeli families joining the poverty cycle, with more than 15,000 families or 123,500 individuals joining the growing ranks of poor people in this country in 2009, following the global economic crisis that set in at the tail-end of 2008.” And it will continue to rise 44.9% of Jews living in Jerusalem alone live under the poverty level go to PayPal.com and give to email@example.com
In November 2010, the National Insurance Institute released its latest Report on Poverty. It concluded that in 2009, 123,000 Israelis joined the “circle of poverty,” and that 850,000 children and a growing number of working poor are now considered to be living below the poverty line.
It is clear that poverty in Israel is spiraling out of control. The gap between the rich and the poor in Israel is also growing rapidly as the middle class disappears. In 2009, Israel’s middle class made up only 15% of the population, a decrease of nearly 20% since the 1980s. And the figure continues to shrink. This is dangerous, if not deadly, to the Israeli economy. A healthy economy is represented by a large middle class of workers with buying power. The current situation and trend is unsustainable.
While some of the recent statistics were impacted by the global recession, it is far from the whole story. Israel had put conservative banking and fiscal policies in place long before the global crisis due to its own earlier troubles, so the global downturn did not hit Israel as hard. In 2007, the Central Bureau of Statistics showed that even when the economy was at its peak, great numbers of Israelis were falling from the middle class and having difficulty putting food on their tables as middle class incomes fell.
The global recession is not to blame here. This is an older, more serious problem.
So what is causing this increasing stratification of the haves and have nots in Israel? Is it the inability of young advancing couples to save enough to buy capital at 40% down? Is it the government’s policy of encouraging a culture of not working for the ultra-religious and paying more for every child born to by-choice, unemployed families? Or is it an overly generous social welfare system that leads to people finding it easier to stay home and live off of welfare checks than head back to work?
We’re at breaking point
Instead of setting aside funds to keep the splinter political parties of the coalition happy, why doesn’t the Israeli government set aside funds for poor kids who can’t afford but desperately want a higher education and an opportunity at a career? Many poor kids drop out of school at young ages in order to feed themselves since they see few future rewards of even bothering to finish high school. A subsistence items market will not support a strong economy. Where can scholarship money come from? Or money for longer school days (school ends around 1:00 PM at public schools in Israel)? Or money for rehabilitation programs for teenagers that have no place to call home?
What is keeping the long-term unemployed at home instead of out in the workplace? Maybe this budgeting season the government should look into more welfare to work programs and providing vocational training.
Why are we bringing thousands and thousands of foreign workers into the country when we have hundreds of thousands of citizens out of work? Agricultural work and caring for the elderly may not be glamorous but choosing to stay home instead of working in these fields shows that there is a serious problem with the social welfare system, with the work ethic of Israelis and with the relevance and effectiveness of the educational system for the poor.
The founding of the modern State of Israel is the most important thing that has happened to the Jewish people in 2,000 years. We need to take a step back and realize that the ancient battles playing out today as “the conflict” are only half the story. The country’s domestic battles get fewer headlines but are just as dangerous.
Israel is a “Holy Land,” but it is also a real state with the same social problems as every other developed country. Prosperity in the face of conflict and the stress of 1,774,800 citizens living in poverty is simply not possible. The government needs to adopt policies and make systemic changes and budget priority adjustments to prevent an economic crisis, while simultaneously attempting to hold a coalition government in place.
