Haredi Rabbis Fed up with Extremists, Threaten to Cut Payments

Monday, August 19th, 2013

Rabbis from the “Eidat Haredim” stream of ultra-orthodox Judaism have put their foot down and their hands in their pockets over extremist Haredim violence and have threatened to cut off payments to Torah students who participate in vandalism.

Extremists have been protesting construction in the city, located several miles west of Jerusalem, because of claims that the building is taking place over Jewish graves. Eidat Haredim rabbis have spoken out against the violence, and one rabbi told his Torah students that they will lose their monthly Kollel learning stipends if they join the disturbances.
