A proposed Sunday law passed the Ministerial Legislation Committee today, and will now go to the Knesset for voting on Wednesday.

The proposed law states that six times a year Israelis will get a long weekend, with Sundays off, starting in 2017.


The six days off will correspond with days when schools are already off — during summer vacation and holidays, so that finally parent’s vacation schedules will correspond with school vacation schedules.
