Knesset Approves Bill to Recognize Jews' Expulsion


The Knesset approved on Monday evening the first reading of a law, authored by MK Shimon Ohayon (Yisrael Beytenu), to mark the expulsion of Jews from Arab countries.

The bill will establish a day to mark the expulsion of Jews from Arab countries as well as from Iran on November 30 each year. In addition to activities in schools and in Israeli missions abroad, the bill also stipulates that a special Knesset session will be held on this day.
