Youth organizations to receive smaller budget cuts, Smotrich announces

Youth organizations in Israel have been lobbying against proposed cuts to government funding, and their efforts may have paid off. Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich announced a review of the decision to reduce funding for these organizations at the beginning of a meeting of the Knesset Finance Committee. The budget for youth organizations will still be reduced, but not as significantly as originally 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. They expressed their gratitude to those who spoke out against the cuts and urged others to continue fighting for their cause.

It is unclear how the information about hacking Facebook and Instagram relates to the content about funding cuts for youth organizations. Therefore, this seems to be an unrelated and irrelevant addition to the content.
