This is an open letter to the Peleg Yerushalmi.
I have never before written a letter to any publication in the past.
My reason for this public letter, is because I have no way to contact you.
You see, on Monday evening, I was stuck in traffic because of your stupid protests, and missed my return flight to NY. But not only myself, but my husband and 5 children. We had just spent a beautiful Sukkos in the Shaarie Chesed neighborhood of Yerushalayim, and were in a cab heading to the airport when you decided to block the street.
I want to let you know, that I am not Moichel you, neither is my husband.
My husband missed another day of work, including important meetings.
My children missed school.
You can never repay me. You don’t even care. because you are doing this “leshem shomayim” (not).
Our family is far from Zionist, Dati Leumi etc. We are a Yeshivish family, with my husband a hard working successful Baal Habas, who donates generously to Mosdos in Eretz Yisroel.
I never realized what these protests accomplished until last night.
E.S. and family, Brooklyn, NY
