The experimental program Mehalev, which is the Israeli equivalent of From Welfare to Work and is designed to find employment for recipients of income support who are required to take an employment test, has been implemented in Israel since August 2005. The program is based on legislation stipulating that the implementation of the program is to be the subject of an evaluation, which should indicate the extent to which the program goals have been achieved. It should also provide the government and the Knesset with the factual foundation on which to base their decision whether to extend the program to additional areas of the country and, if so, in what format. The findings from the study, conducted jointly by the Myers-JDC-Brookdale Institute and the National Insurance Institute (NII), have to date been published in five reports (in Hebrew) on the websites of both institutes. This report is the sixth report and offers a summary of the evaluation.
