Diaspora Minister Nachman Shai (Labor) referred to the possibility of extending the Law of Return to great-grandchildren as well, "I am not canceling it, we need to think about it.

There are 600,000 Jews in Russia according to the Law of Return and 160,000 Jews according to Halacha. Let's not be fixated on history. Previous aliyot (immigration of Jews to Israel) breathed new life in our society."
