“We are still in competition with the virus, the mutation is rampant,” the prime minister added. “For this purpose we need to go through the next few days as we vaccinate the population at risk and complete the vaccination campaign.” Article link https://www.news1.news/news/2021/02/netanyahu-on-restrictions-on-purim-i-will-propose-to-the-government-to-impose-a-night-curfew-on-thursday-friday-and-saturday-from-2030-to-0500.html
The Ministry of Health also demands a distance limit (1,000 meters) , But in blue and white the position is to focus on closure or curfew in bright red localities only.
Both Minister Yuli Edelstein and Corona Commissioner Nachman Ash sided with him yesterday. “A night curfew can be beneficial in the current circumstances. We are in extensive discussions with other ministries as well. There is no ideal solution,” Edelstein admitted in an interview with Gali Tzahal. “Restrictions on Purim are inevitable.”
The minister also said that his office had received reports of social media organizations holding pirate parties during the holiday and a 35% increase in alcohol sales. “We are trying to avoid it. At the moment the news we are receiving is not encouraging, so at the cabinet meeting we will consider what to do in a state of curfew,” he said. “We want to let people feel the holiday, eat with the family and hear from Megillah, but do avoid parties, drooling and feasting with everyone.”
Commissioner Ash: “Restraint on Purim will help celebrate Passover happily”
At the same time, the Corona commissioner conducted a briefing for the ultra-Orthodox sector in which he addressed the importance of maintaining the guidelines during the holiday. “Our recommendation is for a weekend curfew from 08:30 in the evening until 05:00 in the morning,” the commissioner said. “Throughout the day the green outline itself will be valid. In the synagogues we allow either 10 inside and 20 outside or according to the green outline guidelines, and I believe many synagogues will also operate on Purim according to this outline. Judaism values are very important to the state and the green outline also Of occupancy and also of behavior, such as distances between chairs and use of masks, prohibition of eating and drinking, etc. Synagogues operating in the green outline are no different from other places operating in this outline and restrictions will apply to them, along with the easing of the green sign.
“Regarding Purim meals, our guidelines are to carry out meals within a nuclear family, or the addition of a first-class family if they are vaccinated, but no police officer will enter a private home to check this. On restraint on Purim, it will help us celebrate Pesach with joy. “
Earlier, Defense Minister Benny Gantz visited the village of Julis to get an impression of the immunization efforts there. During the visit, he arrived with Minister Michael Bitton, MK Yael Ron Ben Moshe and Ruth Wasserman-Landa and Mofid Marai, former head of the Hurfish Council and a candidate on behalf of Blue and White for the next Knesset, to meet with Sheikh Mawafek Triff, the spiritual leader of the Druze community.
Referring to the expected cabinet meeting tonight, he said: “Today we are fighting for two things. First we will fight for a little more closure on Purim so that we will be okay on Passover, and therefore we will support traffic restrictions, with emphasis on night restrictions, to prevent gatherings on the holiday. Second, we will insist “Article link https://www.news1.news/news/2021/02/netanyahu-on-restrictions-on-purim-i-will-propose-to-the-government-to-impose-a-night-curfew-on-thursday-friday-and-saturday-from-2030-to-0500.html
The opening of the education system as early as possible in green and yellow cities. Education suffers from a very large shortage of school days, and we will work as much as possible to release the system.”
Preparing for enforcement on Purim – against the corona and against drunk driving
The police are preparing for increased enforcement during the holiday, fearing that the custom of drinking to drunkenness will manifest itself on the roads. Enforcement will also be carried out in matters of the corona, as well as towards participants and organizers of underground parties.
