Latest Sundays-off proposal suggests once-a-month compromise

The latest in a long line of initiatives to give Israelis Sundays off is a compromise: One three-day weekend, Friday-Sunday, once a month.

For years, former interior minister Silvan Shalom championed Sundays off as a way to sync up the Israeli workweek with most of the world, and Bayit Yehudi chairman Naftali Bennett joined the efforts, to no avail. MKs Eli Cohen (Kulanu) and David Amsalem (Likud) are latest to pick up the mantle, proposing their middle-ground bill this week.
