Joint Moatzos Meeting to Be Held Thursday Regarding Chillulei Shabbos

A joint meeting of the Moetzes Gedolei HaTorah of Agudas Yisrael in Eretz Yisrael, the Moetzes Gedolei HaTorah of Degel HaTorah, and the Moetzet Chachmei HaTorah of Shas – will be held on Thursday afternoon, Rabbi Avraham Rubinstein, secretary of the Moetzes of Degel HaTorah, announced Sunday. On Tuesday, it was announced that the location of the meeting would be at the Talmud Torah Chavas Daas in Yerushalayim.

The meeting concerns the government’s ongoing flouting of agreements and understandings reached to eliminate chillulei Shabbos such as the infrastructure work on the railway even though there is no pikuach nefesh. All attempts to appeal to Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz or the special government committee that was established for this purpose have so far led nowhere.

This meeting will be held in advance of a meeting of the MKs of the three chareidi parties with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.
