Sh'ma Israel on the Temple Mount

A 15-year-old Jewish youth was detained on Temple Mount Sunday morning on suspicion that he committed a ritual tearing of his garments. According to Halacha, a Jew who sees the cities of Judea in their ruin must tear his garments.

Legal aid society Honenu reported that police let the young man go shortly after his detention without an interrogation.
