The law in Israel protects the right of people with disabilities to equality and accessibility adjustments so that they can function as independently and equally as possible. The law of accessibility and equality for persons with disabilities is a complex set of laws, regulations and standards aimed at preventing the discrimination of persons with disabilities and ensuring their right to access in commercial and public places and services, which require public and commercial places and bodies to make accessibility adjustments.
