The ultra-Orthodox parties have decided to stop demanding the amendment of the Grandchild Clause of the Law of Return, despite their demand to cancel it in recent weeks, according to a report by Israel’s KAN public broadcasting on Monday.

According to the report, the Likud Party managed to convince the partner parties in the coalition to establish a committee to discuss the Grandchild Clause and formulate conclusions regarding it during the term itself. In addition, the Likud hasn’t agreed to include any texts that modify or cancel the clause in the coalition agreement.

Ynet reported that there was an apparent compromise according to which permanent residency status would be granted to those who currently are eligible to become Israeli citizens since they are grandchildren of a Jew - even though they aren’t considered Jewish themself.
