Education Minister Shai Piron announced on his Facebook page on Sunday that he has decided to make the ministry’s offices in Jerusalem accessible to the disabled.

"I thought about it for a while but for ethical reasons, I have no choice,” Piron stated, “It simply cannot be that the Minister of Education's office does not enable hosting handicapped people for a conversation.”

Piron explained that he has requested a temporary office to be built by the building’s lobby until an elevator will be installed in the next six months.

“I hope that the elevator will be put in quickly,” he wrote, “It is not possible that the office of a minister in the State of Israel does not allow access for all citizens."
