Back-to-school costs on the rise, according to respondents to a new survey

An average of nearly NIS 3,000 is what families expect to spend on "Back to School" items this year, according to a survey published by Chasdei Naomi, a Bnei Brak based charity organization that helps orphans and widows in Israel.

The telephone survey, carried out by the Rafi Smith Institute, polled 400 parents across the country about the expected costs of sending their children back to school this year.

Parents were asked to estimate the expected cost per child of school supplies such as books, notebooks, writing implements, clothes, a backpack, and more.
