Sefardim On Bills And Coins


MK Yaakov Margi of Shas submitted a bill that would transfer the authority to approve new bills and coins from the Bank of Israel to the Knesset Education and Sports Committee.

Last year, Shas leader Aryeh Deri was furious when a Bank of Israel committee authorized a new money series commemorating poets which did not include one Sefardi individual.

Although new currency was only due to be authorized in another twelve years, Prime Minister Netanyahu agreed to soon issue a new 500 shekel note with a Sefardipersonality.
