MK Menachem Eliezer Moses has turned Alex Vishnitzer, who heads the state committee overseeing operations at Kever Rashbi. Moses addressed the fact that hundreds of thousands of visitors will be making their way to the tziyun on Lag B’Omer, coming from near and far.
In his letter to Vishnitzer MK Moses asks to have shaded benches installed on the way up from the entrance to the Rashbi in order to facilitate mispallalim, men, women and children alike. He explains the hill is difficult for many of them, especially during the hot afternoon hours. The MK also asks that organizers make certain there are significantly more portable toilets set in place and to have sufficient manpower to maintain their operation in a hygienic fashion in line with the large volume of people passing through the area.
Moses writes “I am familiar with your dedication to the Meron site and I am therefore condiment that the needs of visitors will be met. I thank you for making the necessary arrangement in the time allotted”.
Moses explains that in the past he received many complaints regarding the areas mentioned in his letter.
