Cracking Down On Petirah Pashkevillin in Yerushalayim


For the past 18 months, the Yerushalayim municipality has been increasingly cracking down on the illegal mourning posters and amplified funeral announcements. City law prohibits the publicizing of messages by poster or loudspeaker without a license.

The city is fining violators $260 per announcement and impounding vehicles.

People in the business complain the municipality allocates too little space for the posters.

  1. About time. They cover the most absurd places in posters. There’s no reason for notices of death to be plastered on garbage bins (!!), every construction fence, walls bus stops and all over in the most random and irreverent places!!
