Yom Kippur, Dizengoff Square

Erez Tal on the Dizengoff incident: "Open a competing prayer"

After the riots that broke out during Yom Kippur following the prayers throughout Tel Aviv, Erez Tal commented on the case and claimed: "It is impossible to wave that Tel Aviv is a free city and at the same time prevent those who want to pray separately from doing so."

After left-wing protesters disrupted the annual Yom Kippur prayers throughout the city of Tel Aviv, and protesters disrupted prayers by shouting "shame" and constantly interrupting worshipers in Dizengoff Square, many politicians and celebrities decided to respond and present their position, including presenter Erez Tal.

"Please take a deep breath and only then read," Tal wrote, "You cannot wave that Tel Aviv is a free city and in the same breath prevent those who want to pray separately in the square from doing so. No one is forcing you to join. Does it bother you? So open in front of them a competing prayer without separation, as simple as that.

what is the fear? Are the sneaky messiahs trying to bewitch us? I believe we have a slightly thicker backbone and forgiveness. Let's get down this tree because Ben-Gvir is already starting to celebrate with pleasure how we fell into this trap. There are enough much more justified directions to direct the anger of the protest."

In the end, Tal added and also referred to the legal aspect of the issue, saying that "it is complex, but it is not that the High Court has 'forbidden prayer in separation' ".

The actor and comedian Orel Tsabari also commented on the riots and wrote: "One must understand what is such a great disaster about praying separately? As has been the case over the years in Judaism, especially when in another square there was a prayer that was not separated. It can be perfect, everyone fulfills their Kippur as they believe."
