Schools canceled as most begin Passover break anyway

The Homefront Command has nixed classes nationwide, but will allow workplaces to open as normal, and gatherings as large as 1,000 people for the vast majority of the country.

The rules, which remain in effect until 11 p.m. Monday, come into effect as most Israeli schoolkids are getting their first day of Passover break.

In the Gaza region and areas along the border with Lebanon gatherings are capped at 300 for indoor gatherings and 100 and 30 respectively for outdoor ones. Work is also restricted to places with access to a bomb shelter.
