The dollar is still worth 4 shekels according to the Gedolim

The dollar today, April 1, 2008, is worth 3.54809 Israeli New Shekel. I posted last month, The dollar is still worth 4 shekels according to the Gedolim, that the Gedolim decided that for the Areivim project the $18 monthly contribution is to be calculated at 4 shekel to the dollar. This month again both Areivim and the Gemach Hamercazi reiterated that the dollar is still 4 shekels.




It will be interesting to see how long they continue with this as opposed to just switching to the shekel.

If they leave the dollar, they lose the symbolism of giving $18.
