With new law, Israelis over 80 no longer have to wait in line

JERUSALEM (JTA) – Israelis aged 80 and older will no longer have to wait in line in stores and for most services.

The Knesset unanimously passed a bill that will allow the elderly to receive public services without waiting in line at places such as the post office, bank, supermarket, movie theaters and cultural events.

Disabled individuals will still get priority over the elderly.

Social Equality Minister Gila Gamliel of the ruling Likud party called it a “moral and significant law” that is “sorely needed.”

“I have no doubt that this law will help make honoring the elderly become a social norm, so that one day it becomes superfluous.” she said.
