Haredim Throw Rocks, Eggs, at ‘Abomination Apartment’

According to the website Hadrei Haredim, the woman in question is being accused of luring young Haredi women to her path.

Over the past few days, Haredi residents of the Shmuel Hanavi neighborhood in Jerusalem have been running an intense campaign against one of their neighbors, reportedly a mother of 11, who is living alone, and conducting a life style which the residents find objectionable.

Pashkvils (warning posters) were spread around the neighborhood, criticizing women wearing tight clothes, calling them “animals.” According to the website Hadrei Haredim, the woman in question is being accused of luring young Haredi women to her path.

A source inside the Haredi community in Jerusalem told the Jewish Press that the woman in question is running a house of ill repute.

It appears that because of their reluctance to “name a spade a spade,” the Haredi community is finding it difficult to raise effective public objection to the shameful enterprise in their midst. Some Chasidic rebbes and Haredi rabbis have issued a strong letter against the woman and her “apartment of abomination,” but stopped short of saying what type of abomination was being practiced there.

On Saturday night, rabbis and several dozen local residents (and curious onlookers) demonstrated outside the apartment. One of the leaders of the campaign, a local rabbi, announced: “We will fight vigorously” against this abomination.

Stones, eggs and bags of water were thrown from adjoining buildings at the protesters. Miraculously, no one was hurt, except for one minor injury sustained by one of the people on the street.

Police force and Riot Police eventually came down and blocked the area outside the building where the targeted woman resides, to prevent violence.

Our source said the Haredi inability to articulate the problem in the neighborhood reminded him of a joke: a man goes to see his rabbi and confesses that he sinned, but he just can’t utter what he had done.. “Was it with that woman from that street?” the rabbi asks. “No,” says the man. “Was it with that other woman from that other street?” the rabbi asks. Again, no. Finally the man comes out and his friend asks him, did the rabbi give you absolution? “No,” says the man, “but I took down plenty of prospects.”

    I wonder if anyone has tried to talk with her — not yell at her & not hit her, just talk. If she truly is running a "house of ill repute" (as opposed to maybe having one "friend" to whom she isn't married), she's doubtless doing it because she needs the money. There are other ways to get money, & perhaps she can be helped to find one or be trained in some sort of acceptable profession.

  2. Chaiya Eitan says:

    I just wonder how many of those who are throwing the eggs have have been her customers….if that is indeed what she's doing…

  3. Yehuda Cohen says:

    Lots of questions but very little answers. Need to call in the professionals on this one and not leave it to the street mobs full of police. This is not something that happened yesterday and the neighborhood is at fault to have known about it for so long and not tried to help correct it peacefully.

  4. Anonymous says:

    Real Jews woukl NOT merely accuse, they would provide real evidence. I detest those who fabricate immoral charges without strong evidence. Also, real Jews would HELP the woman financially if she was, in fact, lowering herself to support her family out of desperation.

  5. Rc Fowler says:

    I would not believe what these Haredi say about this woman; many of the Haredi are profoundly mentally ill!

  6. Rc Fowler says:

    The author has not given any evidence of what this woman is doing–other than residing in her apartment–neither have the offending Jews.

  7. William Filber says:

    For Evil to succeed takes only a few good individuals to do nothing, drawing a line in the sand is nothing new and it just might help protect the future morals of our young people and the nation foundation. Shalom Israel.
