I'd say the odds of this being lifted before Pesach are quite small.
then it's just like
like the Purim story -- will this decree be annulled???

Here's my working theory/hope --> if the rumors are true that the decision to impose a worldwide quarantine on all foreigners was based on the Israeli fears of upsetting the Americans (the initial plan was to add certain US cities only).... then, my theory is that in 2 weeks, they will start to *add* cities/countries that are exempt from the self imposed quarantine.  For those of us in Canada, if I'm correct then maybe some of us will be able to get to Israel for Pesach. 

Obviously, the biggest hole in my theory is that getting to Toronto from any US city is easy -- so, my theory is so weak but it leaves me with some hope (1%) that my Pesach in Israel will still happen :)

Will Israel's ban on gatherings of more than 100 people affect yeshivos, schools etc. that have more than 100 people learning in the same room?

My shul (in Modiin) is already making arrangements to split up minyanim - 3-4 parallel on Friday night (some in houses), 2 parallel for weekday shacharit etc etc.

Supposedly yes. Can't see how this would be enforceable or adhered to.

FWIU this isn't correct. I don't believe it applies to schools or yeshivos. Though it is a major problem for weddings and the like

Oh my, weddings! Hadn't even thought of that. Lots of those planned over the next 2 to 3 weeks. I wonder what will happen!

But it does apply to prayer apparently. So a yeshiva can learn first seder with over 100 people in their beis medrash but then they can't daven mincha together at the end of seder?
