Israel’s Supreme Court has ordered the State of Israel to show cause as to why chametz can not be brought into the hospitals in the country during the Jewish holiday of Passover, while determining appropriate arrangements that would enable observance of kashrut standards for the food served by the hospitals, according to Ynet.

A response by the State is required by June 1, 2019; that is, a month and a half after the upcoming Passover holiday.


The reality of the situation is that on this upcoming holiday, Israeli hospitals this year will still be able to prohibit the entry of chametz at their facilities at their discretion.
