Hundreds of chareidi women arrived on Sunday arrived at a Beit Shemesh shopping and employment fair, only to be met by extremists who protested at the site. When the group heard of the event taking place in the Kinor David Hall, they immediately headed to the site to protest. They carried signs against the Zionists and the State, screaming “Gevald” as they chanted.
The hundreds of women in attendance heard advice from professionals, experts in their fields, all offering their experience towards enabling the women to earn a Parnasa honorably. The experts included the directors of leading colleges who spoke to them.
Adding fuel to the demonstration on Sunday night is the recent change of government in Beit Shemesh, where newly-elected Mayor Dr. Aliza Bloch was among the speakers addressing the women. Bloch upset the Charedi incumbent, Moshe Abutbul.
