Deri throws tantrum after ministers refuse to okay weddings with 200 guests

Aryeh Deri did the Zoom equivalent of storming out of the coronavirus cabinet meeting — disconnecting from the teleconference — in anger over fellow ministers refusing to okay his plan for weddings with up to 200 guests, just a tad more than the current 20 allowed, according to reports.

Deri also voted against lifting any lockdown restrictions in anger, Kan reports.

According to Walla, Ayman Seiff, who coordinates the coronavirus response in the Arab community, pleaded for the government to not okay the plan.

“One of our achievements in the Arab community was that we managed to stop the weddings — you’ll kill us with this. What’s a pod of 20 people? My family alone has 150 people,” he’s quoted saying.
