Eidah Hachareidis Declares Taanis Over Kevorim Desecration


chareidimThe Eidah Hachareidis in Yerushalayim signed a declaration on Thursday calling on the public to fast today over the ongoing construction at Yaffo’s Andromeda Hill and the ensuing chillul of kevorim at the site.

The Badatz rabbonim wrote in their announcement that today should be marked a taanis on which Yidden should abstain from food and drink until the afternoon hours. During the fast, a rally was slated to be held in Meah Shearim.

Following an accident Wednesday, efforts are being considered to tone down all rallies regarding kevorim.
