Based on Ben-Gurion’s plea to this population to produce many children for the State, celebrating those who reached 10 children, if my memory serves correctly…This is the source of the Kitzvot Yeladim, providing increasing amounts of financial support for those with many children. Sadly, those funds were not sufficient to keep those children out of poverty.
