The Mehadrin Halls Association has appealed to the Prime Minister to bring forward the opening of the events, subject to the green label • They claim that the opening of the halls in just two weeks endangers the public
Demonstration demanding the opening of events last May
With halls ultra appealed urgently to the Prime Minister, the Minister of Health and a series of ministers and MKs religious and ultra-demanding open as soon as the banquet halls for weddings according to the outline green label, since this is where you can edit weddings are not many - due to the counting of the Omer.
According to the existing framework The ballrooms are expected to open on March 7, in exactly two weeks, but the owners of the halls, which are affiliated with the "Mehadrin Halls Association in Israel" organization, claim that there is no reason for this and that this is fatal to them in a letter to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. These, when all sectors of the economy return to routine to a large extent, the wedding industry is forgotten, which is the most critical on the one hand and the safest on the other. "
"Weddings are an integral part of the life cycle, and as already reported by the Ministry of Religious Affairs the total number of weddings in the corona in the year was about eighty percent of the annual average - that is: thousands of weddings were held, most of them pirated.
"Ignoring the relevant factors in arranging wedding events in places designated by the authorities, with particularly stringent regulatory requirements, while preventing patients from entering the event by a green mark or negative checks, such as on green islands or flights, has resulted in a high and unknown number of deaths and patients that could have been avoided. ".
"Now that all the cultural and leisure industries are opening, the events industry is expected to open for a very limited period due to the days of the Omer count. That is, if the industry opens only on March 7, it means the opening will be for only a few days. Again, in the face of a flood of pirated weddings, which is very old. "
Therefore, the hall owners want to open the event industry immediately, subject to the green label outline, "in a way that will allow for safe, minimal risk events, and prevent hundreds and thousands of pirate weddings with the potential to become corona hatcheries and mass infection parties."
The letter was also sent to Health Minister Yuli Edelstein, Interior Minister Aryeh Deri, Bereaved Minister Yaakov Litzman, as well as to MKs Moshe Gafni, Naftali Bennett, Bezalel Smutritz and Yaakov Asher.
