Radical Haredim Riot against Construction over Alleged Tombs

JewishPress Logo

Radical Haredim rioted in Jerusalem and in Beit Shemesh, west of Jerusalem, on Monday because of construction at sites that they said contain Jewish graves. Police took into custody at least 14 rioters.

The Haredim in Jerusalem’s Mea Shearim and Geula neighborhoods set garbage containers on fire following a rabbinical ruled against claims of the developer that the site was over grain and oil warehouses. The rabbis said they investigated and concluded that there are Jewish burial caves underground, making it a holy area where it is forbidden to build.

Haredi rabbis are not unified in their opinion concerning the Beit Shemesh building site.

Construction work continued under police supervision.
