Chareidim Pulling Out Of Tel Aviv City Council


Taking part in a Shas Kenos in Tel Aviv on Monday evening the eve of 29 Nissan, Tel Aviv Deputy Mayor (Shas) Natan Elnatan announced he is leaving the city council following the decision to open supermarkets in the city on Shabbos R”L.

Referring to the High Court of Justice as “the sheigetz”, HaGaon HaRav Shalom Cohen Shlita warned of the increasing tzoros that will befall Am Yisrael as a result of this additional public chilul Shabbos. Cohen went on to praise Shas leader Aryeh Deri and the battle he is waging to circumvent the High Court ruling along with other chareidi elected officials.

  1. The HIgh Court in Israel is unfortunately wreaking havoc on Klal Yisroel, although unfortunately we are mostly oblivious to it. Rav Cohen shlita should be blessed for taking public action for Hashem and the future of Klal Yisrael and Eretz Yisrael, which is hinged upon our observance of Torah and Mitzvos. May we all have the strength to not allow politics to stand in the way of our commitment to Shabbos and everything we hold dear.
