Half-Victory In Tzefas



After long negotiations between the secular mayor of Tzefas, Ilan Shochet, and the Rabbinical Committee for Shabbos Sanctity in Eretz Yisroel headed Rav Yitzchok Goldknopf, it was settled that the old Country Club swimming pool sited near the chareidi Ohr Hachaim neighborhood, which opened on Shabbos for decades, will now be closed on Shabbos and yom tov.

“This is an additional step in the path to return the crown of Tzefas, the town of mekubolim whose streets were trod by gedolei olam, to its former glory,” said Councilman Eliezer Lazer who brokered the deal.

However, a new pool due to open soon will probably operate on Shabbos.
