The Bank of Israel Foreign Exchange Reserves, December 2008
 
Israel’s foreign exchange reserves at the end of December 2008 stood at $41,414 million, an increase of $4,559 million from their level at the end of November 2008.
The change in December derived from:
––an increase of $1,900 million due to Bank of Israel purchases on the market, as part of its planned increase in the foreign exchange reserves, and, from the private sector, a rise of $3,133 million in banks’ foreign currency deposits with the Bank of Israel;
––a decrease due to public sector transfers abroad of some $202 million and a downward revaluation of $272 million of the foreign exchange reserves.
