Ganei Modi’in Residents Protest

The day’s event was intended to be a festive occasion, affixing a mezuzah to the doorpost of the office of Modi’in Illit Councilman Golan Chasdi, but instead, it turned into a venue for a protest by residents of Ganei Modi’in, the chareidi area bordering Chasmonaim but under the municipal jurisdiction of Modi’in Illit. The residents claim that City Hall simply ignores them and they do not receive services as do other areas under the Modi’in Illit umbrella. The protest was held in the presence of Mayor R’ Yaakov Guterman and Minister of Religious Services Yaakov Margi.

According to a Chadrei Chareidim report, the mayor pressed police to respond expeditiously and in large numbers to disperse the protestors as quickly as possible.
