"Uphold the Ruling of the Legal Advisor"

A week after the 'bombing' of the prayer event on Yom Kippur in Dizengoff Square in Tel Aviv, and a day after an event for Haredi girls was 'bombed' in Jerusalem due to its separation, Health Minister Moshe Arbel addresses the events in a letter sent to the mayors: "Action according to guidelines will allow every population to receive the services they are entitled to."

"I am addressing you during the intermediate days of Sukkot, an unusual time, as the great principle, 'there is no vessel that holds a blessing other than peace,' is unfortunately not fulfilled. To my great sorrow, Israeli citizens are exposed to violent actions by those seeking to divide and separate, undermining what unifies and connects Israeli society, against the backdrop of separate cultural and religious events."

The minister also attached the directive of the Attorney General on the issue of separation at cultural events with the involvement of local authorities, which stipulates that cultural events can be held separately for those interested.

"Action in accordance with the guidelines," the minister concluded, "will allow every population to receive municipal services according to the law, and the matter will be clear in order to restore public order and reduce the tension and anger that characterized the recent period."

Activists disrupted an event for ultra-Orthodox women and girls due to its segregation

As reported, social media is abuzz following documentation in which several male activists of the protest movement disrupt an event screening a movie intended for ultra-Orthodox women and girls. They prevented the event from taking place.

Journalist Gideon Dukov responded to the documentation, writing, "'Great heroes' on account of little girls who simply came to watch a movie. Disgusting." Ultra-Orthodox journalist Aryeh Erlich added, "Always remember that behind the 'liberal' facade hides a gang of thugs who victimize Haredi girls. The face of evil, hatred, and cruelty." Yinon Magal commented, "You will never see a privileged group of men disrupting an evening/race for secular women in Tel Aviv. This can only happen when it involves religious women or girls. All the hypocrisy in one picture."
