Recorded list of food ration distribution during the siege of Jerusalem
...................................................................................................................
June - September 1948
Food ration distribution logbook from the War of Independence period during the siege of Jerusalem, June-September 1948 Because of the food shortage resulting from the mass wave of immigration, as well as the need to finance the War of Independence, in early 1949, an austerity policy known in Hebrew as the tzena was instituted. This meant that food and basic goods would be rationed to the consumer public. Dov Yosef, the Minister of Rationing and Supply, was responsible for instituting the policy. In November 1950, the Ministry of Rationing and Supply was abolished, and its jurisdiction was transferred to the Ministry of Industry and Trade. The economic policies were changed in 1952, and a significant number of the austerity measures of the tzena were done away with. The remaining edicts of the austerity program were phased out entirely by 1959.
