Since the coronavirus pandemic began to change – and in many cases, shut down – our world in March 2020, Israel’s borders have been closed to the tourists from around the world who usually flock to the Holy Land. But today, The Times of Israel reports, Israel has once again opened her doors to the tourists who are so important to the Jewish state and the Jewish people:

Israel on Monday opened its borders for the first time since March 2020 to tourists who are vaccinated against COVID-19 or have recovered from it…

A detail explanation of the new rules can be found, in English, on the Health Ministry website.
