UTJ MK Prevents Credit Card Service Center Chillul Shabbos


moshe-gafniThe administration of a credit card service center belonging to the Leumi Card Company stopped its operation on Shabbos in the Concord building in Bnei Brak. The chilul Shabbos was prevented thanks to efforts by Finance Committee Chairman UTJ MK Moshe Gafni.

MK Gafni’s office had recently received a number of complaints¬† on the matter. The Industry, Trade and Labor Ministry had granted a special permit to the credit card company to operate its service center on Shabbos.

MK Gafni had turned to the supervisor for work permits on Shabbos within the ministry, and the supervisor had transferred his request to the company’s administration. Leumi Card CEO Danny Cohen had contacted MK Gafni and promised to stop operating the center on Shabbos in Bnei Brak. Starting from this past Shabbos, the center has begun being shomer Shabbos.
