Bnei Brak: Dozens Protest ‘Shabbos Buses’


Dozens of Bnei Brak residents protested today against the chillul Shabbos by the increase in the new “Shabbos buses” in Tel Aviv.

The protesters blocked Jabotinsky Street for a long while, until Israel Police intervened and allowed traffic to resume.

On Friday, UTJ newspapers protested the chillul Shabbos, claiming it to be a gross violation of the status quo which has existed since Israel’s founding.

“Operating buses on Shabbos with funding from local authorities is discriminatory towards those who are traditional, since even though they pay municipal taxes like everyone else, the municipality is preventing them from receiving services paid for by their taxes, and which they cannot enjoy,” the papers read.

  1. Rav Eliyahu Lopian said (during Eiphoh yossele saga)

    “when they give us blows,kumpt unz. kumpt unz!

    {roughly translated :we deserve it.we had it coming.}

    Their silent cry is :you proclaim to be concerned about chinuch,about Tradition.

    What about us? how come you were/are unconcerned about us?”

    Ignore the screams of “k’fiah datit”. Battle for Tradition in every front and all will fall into place

    kol Yisrael areivim zeh l’ more than a fuzzy feel good mantle donning. It bears with it obligations to reprove others
