Whatsapp in Israel? – April 2, 2020

A) Health Minister Yaakov Litzman and his wife💍have been diagnosed with Covid-19😢. His positive test means that many of the country’s most senior civil servants and politicians including PM Netanyahu will need to enter quarantine⛓as they have been in recent contact with him.
B) Further regulations have been announced as Israel battles the spread of corona🦠. Israelis are now being asked to wear masks😷when they leave their homes. Those who do not own masks are asked to improvise using cloths🧣.
C) Scuffles broke out between police and civilians in Jaffa when police👮🏼arrested a man suspected of ignoring his quarantine order⛓.
D) The negotiations to form a unity government are continuing. The major sticking points remain how to distribute the cabinet positions💺and the annexation of certain areas of the West Bank📍.
E) The Chief Rabbis of Israel have again come out against ❎the use of technology 💻during seder🍷🥚. A group of senior Sephardi Rabbis had said Zoom was allowed✅to be used during seder to prevent the elderly👵🏼from leaving their homes to be with family. Several prominent Rabbis have suggested doing the seder in a different order🗒 allowing families to join together over zoom💻for certain parts of the seder before chag starts🕯🕯.
