Tonight, Sunday, motzei 10 Teves, the Eida Chareidis will be holding a major protest against the Jerusalem branch of the high-tech firm Intel, objecting to the company’s operating the facility in the capital on shabbos.
To date, a number of stormy shabbos protests were held outside the Har Chotzvim High-Tech Park facility, but this time, the rabbonim have opted to stage a protest during the week, promising a large attendance since many rabbonim are supporting the move, including the Vaad L’maan Shabbos. HaGaon HaRav Yitzchak Tuvia Weiss Shlita, the Gavaad of the Eida and other senior Eida rabbonim have indicated they will attend as well.
The event will be held on the Ramot Road opposite Intel, beginning at 7:30pm. Organizers indicated the event will take place with or without police approval. Police commanders announced they will be on hand and prepared for any eventuality.
