Israeli High Court Delays Decision on Prohibiting Entry of Chametz at Israeli Hospitals During Passover

March 5, 2019 - from the Jewish Press:

"srael’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."


Israel wants "Kashrut Security Guards" at Hospitals duing Passover

July 9.,2018 from the Haaretz:

"The state told the High Court of Justice on Sunday it had plans to post “kashrut security guards” at hospital entrances to ensure that no hametz (leavened food) is brought into the facilities during the Passover holiday."
The plan was revealed during a hearing on petitions against regulations that ban hametz at hospitals during Passover. When the justices said that it wasn’t possible to turn hospital security guards into enforcers of kashrut policy, the state’s attorney replied: 'There is a desire and an intent to create kashrut security guards.' "
"In the context of Passover, there is a sweeping ban on bringing any food at all into the hospital during the holiday; only food supplied by the hospital may be eaten at the facility."
