As promised, many Peleg protestes gathered at Bar Ilan and SHmuel hanavi shuttign traffic on Sunday afternoon.
As YWN had reported earlier, at Peleg Yerushalmi rabbonim instructed talmidim and avreichim to take to the streets and resume protests in both Jerusalem and Bnei Brak.
Protesters in Jerusalem mat at the junction of Bar Ilan and Shmuel HaNavi Streets at 3:30PM. HaRav Tzvi Friedman was reportedly expected to address the protest.
Traffic was brought to a halt, as hundreds of protesters swarmed the streets, sitting down. It was raining when the protests began.
Police report that 10 protesters were taken into custody.
Shouts of “Nazi!” and “Shiksa” were hurled at officers when protesters refusing to resist arrest were taken into custody.
The protests follow the arrest and jailing of Peleg-affiliated talmid Yehuda Tumback (טומבק) in Ben-Gurion Airport last week as he tried leaving Israel on a trip to kivrei tzaddikim in Europe.
Due to a split in the peleg, the “moderate faction” of Peleg will not be participating.
