The Coronavirus cabinet voted to allow students in grades 1-4 to return to the classroom beginning this Friday. Students will study in capsules in order to reduce exposure to the virus if a fellow student or teacher becomes infected. This comes on the tail of calls from many parents and educational professionals throughout the country to reopen schools as safely as possible. The emotional and mental damage children have suffered due to the closing of schools has been hard during this second lockdown. Many more children are showing signs of depression and anxiety as a result, and there is a growing consensus that the best thing for children is to be in a social and educational routine. Please pray for protection over students, teachers, and administrative employees in the schools, that they would not be infected. Please continue to pray for wisdom for Israel’s leaders as they navigate these unprecedented times.
