Know Thy Rights
As an Israeli citizen, it's important to know your rights and benefits. But accessing the information isn't necessarily easy. So that's why you'll be pleased to know that you can find information about RE-SPECS in these valuable places: The Shira Pransky Project as well as Kol Zchut. See the listing under Additional Rights and Benefits. Now, isn't that great to know?
