Following the arrest of Asra Kadisha director HaGaon HaRav Dovid Smeidal by police in Beersheva on Tuesday, 20 Kislev 5773, protests are scheduled to take place today, Wednesday 21 Kislev in Eretz Yisrael, the UK and New York City.
In New York City, a protest is scheduled to be held at 4:00pm in front of the Israeli Consulate to decry the arrest of HaGaon HaRav Dovid Smeidal Shlita, director of Asra Kadisha “by the Zionists” as well as to protest the ongoing chilul kevarim in Beersheva, referring to the so-called Karaso project, the construction of a new municipality complex.
Pashkavilim already appeared on Tuesday following the arrest, calling on the tzibur to decry the “arrest of the talmid chacham and the ongoing chilul kevarim in Beersheva”.
In Eretz Yisrael, a protest is scheduled on Wednesday morning, with buses transporting participants from areas around Eretz Yisrael, including Yerushalayim, Bnei Brak and Beit Shemesh to Beersheva.
