"The agora (Hebrew: אגורה‬, pl. אגורות‬, agorot) is a denomination of the currency of Israel. The Israeli currency – the new Israeli shekel (ILS) – is divided into 100 agorot.
This name was used for the first time in 1960, when the Israeli government decided to change the subdivision of the Israeli LIRA (a.k.a. Israeli pound) from 1000 prutot to 100 agorot.
The name was suggested by the Academy of the Hebrew Language, and was borrowed from the Hebrew Bible, I Samuel 2:36 ...every one that is left in thine house shall come and crouch to him for a piece of silver... (the term "piece of silver" appears in Hebrew as "agorat kessef").". (Wikipedia)
