Following Monday’s historic kenos of Gedolei HaDor Shlita in Yerushalayim, Rav Menachem Porush Shlita spoke with Kol Chai Radio. When asked about the decision of Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat regarding the shabbos operation of the Karta parking lot, Rav Porush stated “he simply does not understand Yerushalayim, the kedusha of the city, that it is a chareidi city.”

Rav Porush added that he sent a letter to the mayor expressing his pain over the chilul shabbos decision, adding that “if he does not understand this, he will be off the stage,” meaning his days in office are indeed numbered.
