​The deputy minister of health, MK rabbi Yaakov Litzman, has announced the appointment of Dr. Shimon Shoshani, former director-general of the ministry of education, as a member of the Public Committee for Extension of the Medical Service Basket for 2013, replacing Mr. Eyal Gabbai, former director-general of the Prime Minister’s Office.

Mr. Eyal Gabbai was required to stay abroad for a substantial period during the committee’s deliberations, and therefore it has been decided to appoint a replacement, to facilitate the proper functioning of the committee.
