The Beitar Jerusalem soccer team announced that it will stop playing on Shabbat in order to allow its religious and traditional fans to attend team home games.

Home games will be held on Saturday nights or weekdays, according to the announcement by the team’s new owner Eli Tabib.

Beitar Jerusalem made headlines earlier this year when the signing of two Chechen Muslims, leading to fan protests and the torching of the team’s trophy room. Fans also attacked several Arabs at Jerusalem’s Malha Mall earlier this year.

    Kol haKavod to Beitar! Thursday night soccer (or whatever night they want) could get to be just as accepted as Monday night football in the USA.

    Bravo! Now just be consistent in your pro-Torah policies: Shabbos, yes. Muslims, no.

  3. The times they are a changin'!
