The Civil Administration gave the green light: The Cave of the Patriarchs will be accessible to the disabled


The Planning Committee of the Civil Administration recently approved the accessibility of the Cave of the Patriarchs and thus effectively removed the last deterrent on the way to accessibility.

Last week, a discussion took place in the planning committee of the Civil Administration, in which the Hebron Municipality’s objections and the left-wing Emek Shaveh organization for making the accessibility presented were presented. The next step until actual accessibility is a tender for contractors to perform work on site and immediately after that actual accessibility will begin without further delay.

The human rights organization B’Tselem, which fights for the accessibility of the Cave of the Patriarchs: “This is a historic day for human rights. “The Prime Minister and Defense Ministers Bennett and Gantz will continue to monitor and make sure that accessibility will be implemented as soon as possible without any further delay, however minor.”

MK Katie Sheetrit: “Dawn of a new day in Hebron! The Planning Committee of the Civil Administration approved the construction of an accessible elevator in the Cave of the Patriarchs. In the last year and a half we have progressed heel on thumb side towards the target and passed all the hurdles. As someone who follows the issue closely, I will continue to follow until the actual accessibility of the second site in its sanctity to the Jewish people. “

Chairman of the Shas faction, MK Michael Malkieli, one of the leaders in the struggle to make the Cave of the Patriarchs accessible: “It is good news to start the year with it. A saga of many years has come to an end, after countless discussions in the various committees and many letters on the subject. The elevator and the access path will greatly help people with disabilities who have so far been required to go through a whole ordeal until they reach the Cave of the Patriarchs. “
