Tel Aviv Light Rail Workers Arrive On Pesach


Bnei Brak residents on Pesach got a first-hand look at Chilul Yomtov by light rail construction workers on Jabotinsky Street in the city. It does appear the workers detected close to 10:30AM Yomtov morning (last day) were non-Jews.

A number of avreichim from Pardes Katz saw them arrive and chased them away, not permitting them to work as intended.

Kikar Shabbos News reports an eyewitness explains the workers arrived just as they do on any weekday but after the protest of the avreichim, they decided to pack it in and leave. The report quotes Bnei Brak City Hall officials responding, citing the incident is viewed most seriously.
