Diaspora Minister Nachman Shai calls on Prime Minister Naftali Bennett to allow unvaccinated children of foreigners to enter Israel ahead of Passover.

“In honor of the upcoming Passover holiday, [you should] allow immediately for every Jewish family that wants to do so to gather around the holiday table,” says Shai.

Bennett and other government officials are slated to meet tomorrow to weigh lifting the few COVID restrictions that remain in place, including considering loosening entry restrictions to allow children who are unvaccinated to enter.
