The Israeli Knesset is scheduled to vote on Wednesday on Adhan ban bill which was earlier postponed after an appeal submitted by Israeli Health Minister Yakov Litzman, Israel Hayom newspaper revealed.
In his appeal, Litzman referred to the similarities between the Adhan calls and the call announcing the beginning of Shabbat.
The new draft of the bill which is scheduled to be submitted for the vote on Wednesday has excluded synagogues from the “noise pollution.”

The bill was first presented in March by MK Motti Yogev from Jewish Home, a religious Israeli political party, and Robert Ilatov from Yisrael Beiteinu, a secularist and right-wing nationalist political party.
