A meeting was held on Sunday 3 Kislev that included Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Bayit Yehudi leader Minister Naftali Bennett, Shas party leader Minister Aryeh Deri, Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan and Givat Ze’ev Mayor Yossi Avrahami, an agreement was reached by which Beit Knesset Ayelet HaShachar will be demolished in compliance with the High Court of Justice ruling, and rebuilt by the government on undisputed land.
The new building will be located on land that was allocated for a playground. In the interim, the mispallalim will use a public bomb shelter as their shul.
According to statements made by Bennett, the new shul will be completed within three months and the contents of the old shul will be moved in to the new site.

Partly good news!
This is just to pacify the injustice that was perpetrated by what is called BaGaTZ, high court! It is the lowest of the low!
A) It was proved to have been purchased land: the deed proved it!
B) The shul people offered the arab cousin to pay his fair share of the sale but this Rammalla miscreant refused the money. They agreed to pay even though it was paid in full to the cousin who didn’t turn over the share this miscreant claims is due him.
C) Why must the court placate arabs on the backs of Jews? Couldn’t at least the new shul be built first, as halacha and normalcy dictates??
D) Why should government funds pay for its rebuilding? Why is the government guilty?
What is the compromise? They are destroying the shul. What a chilul Hashem,
Ask a ‘Rav’ the ‘Halacha’ Perhaps if the new synagogue is bigger, taller, more beautiful? I also hate this. boruch hoffinger
Correct me if I’m wrong, but my impression is that the Shul was built on stolen land. This solution allows for the Halachik replacement of the shul ((and if its done by the government it my be permissible to take down the shul before the new one is built) which is the best possible outcome, no?
They will rebuild the Shul right after they finish compensating and resettling the victim of the Sharon Pogrom. It is a trick and nothing more.
Let’s not be kidding ourselves, the state of Israel doesn’t take halachah into the cheshbon. For one thing al pi halachah the new shul has to already be built before demolishing the old shul.
