The Tel Aviv District Court ruled that the Tel Aviv Municipality's ban on placing partitions in the "locking" prayer planned to take place this year in Dizengoff Square - stands.

Attorney Zofnat Nordmann, who submitted the petition to the court on behalf of the "Freedom and Human Dignity Forum in Israel" association, said that "the court in the Jewish state prohibits interrupting a Jewish prayer. First ban on a partition in the sovereign state of Israel, since the British and the Mufti. I finished reading the verdict with tears in my eyes and a lump in my throat."

"What an insult. First of all as a Jewish, then as a citizen of the State of Israel, and finally as a jurist, the ruling tramples on the fundamental rationality of administrative and constitutional law, of the liberal system, and inflicts a severe, stinging injury on every Jew who is not yet completely alienated from his quarry. I will stop here. Conclusion Arranged, more will come, in the meantime: to cry."

The conditions set by the municipality for holding the public prayer

As you may remember, the Tel Aviv Municipality forbade holding a separated prayer on Independence Day in the public space. In response to the request that the Tel Aviv Municipality received, regarding holding a prayer on the 75th Independence Day of the State of Israel, the municipality set several conditions.

The request was made as part of a desire to pray and hold a 'remembering and singing' type of event that will be held in the public square on Rothschild Avenue in the city. In the reply letter, which is signed by the deputy director general of the municipality, he states between reasonable conditions such as maintaining reasonable noise and maintaining traffic around the event, also an outrageous and surprising condition: "There will be no separation by physical means", meaning that it will not be possible to pray separately for men and women through partitions as usual
