Schools cancel classes in Beersheba and Ashdod amid rockets
Jerusalem's Bible Lands Museum is opening its doors for free to residents of the South until March 30.
The municipalities in Beersheba and Ashdod cancelled school following the continued rocket fire from Gaza on Monday night, according to Ynet.

However, the special education schools in Ashdod were not shut down.

The Home Front Command ordered the cancellation of schools in Ashkelon, Netivot, Ofakim, and any towns near the Gaza border.

More than 60 rockets were shot into Israeli airspace throughout Monday night.

To assist parents, the Reform community in Beersheba - the Ramot Shalom community - is offering free activities for children in a protected space.

In the planning: baking cookies and pizza, story time, sculpture and music.

Meanwhile, the Bible Lands Museum in Jerusalem said it was opening its doors for free to residents of the South until March 30.

All of the museum's exhibitions are open to visitors, and children are given free entrance to a special experiential activity as a gift. 

"In solidarity [with the South], the Bible Lands Museum opens its gates to the residents of the southern communities who are going through difficult times and invites them to visit the museum and take part in all activities, including participation in a children's story hour and a free Wednesday lecture," the museum said in a statement.
