Sunday, Rosh Chodesh Elul, marked the beginning of the new zman for avreichim around Eretz Yisrael. This includes the many whose days are spent in a beis medrash in Mir Yeshiva, located in the Beis Yisrael neighborhood of Yerushalayim.
Many avreichim arrived to begin the new zman and learned there is a significant shortage in parking. They complained to Kikar Shabbos News, citing today, the situation is worse than usual as a great deal of construction and renovations are being conducted in the area of the yeshiva. In the past, many placed their vehicles on the dirt lot by Kiryat Shomrei Emunim.
Now, one can see the many vehicles driven by avreichim circling the area, though the narrow streets and alleys, looking for a parking space. Complaining to the news, the avreichim add that many received summonses for parking illegally, insisting the city should be “more considerate” to their plight and the lack of parking due to all the construction in the area.
