In recent days, the Ministry of Health has held internal discussions, in which there has been concern that the Admors, the heads of the largest Hasidic sects in the country, will hold Tu Bishvat, mass tables with their believers, in closed halls and in large crowds, contrary to instructions, between Wednesday and Thursday.



The corona projector in the ultra-Orthodox sector, Maj. Gen. Roni Noma, explained that these days "we are at a critical stage of curbing morbidity and bending to indices that will allow, in parallel with an accelerated process of immunization, to reach early spring in a situation that allows real freedom and routine."

He said, "Any irresponsible gathering in the coming days and weeks will disrupt and make it difficult to achieve the goal and may even lead to preventable mortality."

A well-known custom in the courts of the Admors is to hold mass Tishim on Tu B'Shvat, during which they eat the fruits of Eretz Yisrael, hear Torah from the Admor and sing. These are mass events that take place in the Beit Midrash in the closed chassidic buildings. In them, Gur will refrain from holding such events, but there is a great fear that events in other Hassidim will take place anyway. The



fear of the "Tishim" comes after long days of violent confrontations with the police in Bnei Brak, Jerusalem and other ultra-Orthodox cities around the country. A "show of strength" to the police, and in the background of the increase in mutations of the corona virus and their spread in the ultra-Orthodox sector, there is a possibility that these events will have significant health consequences, especially when participants take off masks for food or do not wear them in advance.

The last time the Ministry of Health warned of mass incidents in the courtyards of rebbe and rabbis was on Hanukkah, when mass bonfires were held in some communities, and Maj. Gen. Noma said at the time that "they hope for cooperation from the leaders, to prevent gatherings and further illness." These permits led to a resurgence within ultra-Orthodox society.
