Serious clashes broke out between police forces and attendees of the hilula of the Baba Sali, who were being blocked from the Netivot site due to Israel’s Covid-19 regulations.

An agreement between police and organizers of the event – under which only a handful of visitors would enter the tziyon at one time – quickly fell apart as thousands streamed to the tziyon of the revered mekubal.

As the crowd increased, some began surging towards the tziyon, and clashes with police broke out.

At least three attendees were arrested by police for disorderly conduct and assaulting police officers.

  1. Disgusting behavior . I am confident the Baba Sali would not condone this kind of behavior. Is this what being frum all about. NO. It’s a about learning Torah and doing mitzvot especially ben adam le chvero and for sure ben adam le MAKOM. It is pure chilul Hashem especially when this video goes viral for the goyim and the left to see. This will only strengthen their perception of how ” frum” Jews behave. If it were not for their kippas and captions on the video I would have thought it was the police clashing with the Arabs. Makes me sad . What has happened to the Jewish people?

  2. Israelis should come to America and visit the Kevorim of the Tzadikim buried there (like the Lubavitcher Rebbe and Satmar Rebbe) and learn how on their Yom Hilula, with thousands of visitors coming – and learn how everything is conducted is a clear orderly fashion. What a Kiddush Hashem!

    Something is not right in Israel

  3. And these idiots think they will be able to “control” the gathering at Meron on Lag B’omer??? The leadership of the various groups sponsoring these celebrations have zero control over their followers. The police should absolutely prohibit these events until such time safety can be assured. Those who attempted to break through the police lines put the lives of others at risk and should be prosecuted to the extent allowed by law.

  4. @Klal Yisroel
    IN ISRAEL THE POLICE ARE NOT TRYING TO KEEP ANYONE SAFE THEY JUST NEED CONTROL, IN THE U.S. THE POLICE WOULD HAVE TO ANSWER FOR EVERY PUSH NO DIFFERENCE THE CIRCUMSTANCES IN ISRAEL THESE GUYS GET AWAY WITH EVERYTHING

  5. FOR THE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS PUT IN TO MAKE EVERYTHING LOOK NICE THEY COULD PUSH A EXTRA FEW MAKE THE PLACE SAFE AND BUILD WIDE EXITS,
    BUT IT IS A LOT MORE POWERFUL TO BE THE ONLY ONES ALLOWED TO GO TO MERON, LIKE WE SAW TWO YEARS AGO.
    WHO ARE THESE GUYS THAT GETS TO DECIDE WHO IS ALLOWED TO GO AND WHO IS NOT?
    THEIR JOB IS TO MAKE THE PLACE SAFE NOT CLOSE THE SITE!

  6. It seems, occasionally, that in todays day and age, people are machshiv the dead more than those who are alive. Everyone has become obsessed with running around the world to this kever and that kever, yet they are not machshiv the Rabbonim and Talmedie Chachomim who are with us alive and well B”H. Running to Rav Chaim Kanievsky in order to get your picture taken so it could be printed in the Yated, Hamodia, FJJ, etc… is not considered being machshiv a Gadol.

  7. The police wanted to cancel this. The government decided not to allow this to happen. All the brilliant askanim insisted the wicked government shouldn’t close them down. Look what they got!
    They know their people and they know how their people behave. But never mind, they can yell and protest and insist they have their mad gatherings, and if something goes wrong and someone gets hurt they can always blame the evil Tziyoni government.

  8. hatred between (Israel), Zionist and Jews has become very big always stay at a distance don’t be stupid, I had stories p.s arabs are kinda friendly

  9. Really Confused: You must really be confused if you think posting in all CAPS endows your comments with either coherence or credibility. Grow up.
