Earlier this week, Israel closed Ben Gurion airport to all incoming and outgoing flights, in order to combat a harsh third wave of coronavirus cases and prevent variants of the virus from entering the country. They even took the unprecedented step of temporarily halting aliyah:
Travelers will be prevented from entering or leaving the country except in cases approved by a special committee. The ban on entering Israel includes new immigrants making aliyah, marking the first time that immigration under the Law of Return has been halted in the history of the country.
Please continue to pray for Israel, and the entire world, in this time of crisis.Tags: Aliyah Coronavirus Israel Jerusalem Post
