(Un)Kill(ed) Bill(s): Home Births and Cheap Water

Every week the Knesset passes laws that affect our lives…or someone’s life. Here are some of them that were passed last week.

Water Bill – Government Bill – Cheaper water! Starting in April! It’s a really long bill so here’s an article.

National Insurance Institute Bill – Tamar Zandberg – Meretz – Extends birthing grants to home births under certain conditions. Great for a country where some people give birth in hospital hallways. My wife points out that cheaper water prices will also help the home birth industry.

Qadi Bill– Esawi Frij-Meretz – Raises the qualifications for who is a Qadi and regulates for the committee that appoints Qadi’s to state positions

Entrance to Israel Bill (amendment 28) – a number of MKs – The much more boring amendment in a law that may end up banning BDS activists from entering the country. This one just helps define the Minister of Interior’s role in the law.

VAT Law – Government Bill- Individuals making more than 2.5 million NIS and businesses making more than 1.5 million NIS will have more time to report stuff. If this law applies to you then please consider donating to Kalpi.


That’s all! Have a good Saturday/Shabbes. Don’t forget to like, comment and subscribe! Give us a like on Facebook!
