Members of the security cabinet gather in the Defense Ministry headquarters in Tel Aviv for a meeting, which begins with the lighting of the Hanukkah candles on the fourth night of the holiday.

Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich recites the blessings while Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lights the candles.

On the agenda for the meeting is a proposal to allow for the return of some Palestinian laborers from the West Bank to agricultural and construction work in Israel. Smotrich said he vehemently opposes it, while Netanyahu is said to favor such a move.
