HaGaon HaRav Yitzchak Dovid Grossman Shlita and Deputy Minister of Education Meir Porush met on Thursday morning with President Shimon Peres in a last ditch effort to reach some kind of solution before the prison march.
Rav Grossman explained a solution must be found as the situation continues to boil over, expressing his concerns over the growing hatred that may result in parents go to jail, widening the chasm that exists in Am Yisrael. Telling Mr. Peres “you are a symbol of peace”, Rabbi Grossman called on the president to intervene towards finding a solution, stressing “we have enough enemies outside”.
The president stressed his respect for the rabbonim, but stated there can only be on law in the land, referring to the nation’s judicial system.
The president used to opportunity to call on participants of the planned prison march to remain peaceful and not to engage in any violence.
