Ultra-Orthodox Jews watch a funeral for Rabbi Mordechai Leifer from their balconies in the port city of Ashdod, Israel, on Oct. 5. The rabbi, who had been the spiritual leader of a small ultra-Orthodox community founded a century ago in Pittsburgh, died after being infected with COVID-19.

The number of infections dropped significantly during the lockdown. People will again be allowed to move without restriction. Jerusalem's three main holy sites will reopen to the general public.
