From Hezki Ezra writing at Arutz Sheva:

Minister for Social Equality Gila Gamliel (Likud) will submit a decision to tomorrow’s (Sunday) Cabinet meeting, instructing public services to accept documents through means other than faxes.

After the decision is approved, all government offices will be instructed to accept documents through e-mail and all other forms of digital media. This will not prevent people from using faxes should they choose do to so.

This comes as part of the Ministry for Social Equality’s efforts to improve public services and to support innovation in the public sector, as part of its “Digital Israel” initiative. The Telecommunications Authority, under the leadership of Yair Frank, also contributed.
