Foreign students will be permitted to enter Israel for the upcoming school year, Interior Minister Aryeh Deri and Health Minister Yuli Edelstein announced on Wednesday.
“The announcement comes after weeks of intensive work by the recently formed Yeshiva and Seminary Coalition for Bnei Chul, headed by Rabbi Nechemya Malinowitz,” Chaim V’Chessed stated. “The Coalition is comprised of more than 100 institutions catering to foreign students, from across the spectrum of Orthodoxy, serving a total of 15,000 students.”
The approval applies to all yeshivah, seminary, Ulpana, MASA, and high school students, they said.
All educational institutions will be required to adhere to all Health Ministry regulations.
All students will have to quarantine for two weeks upon arrival in Israel in groups of up to six students.
