On Wednesday morning, dozens of opponents of judicial reform gathered in front of the Religious Zionist yeshiva Har Hamor in Jerusalem for a rally.
Rabbi Zvi Thau, the Noam Party’s spiritual leader, is the yeshiva’s director. The school was allegedly targeted by protesters because they believed it would push Israel closer to becoming a “halachic state,” or a nation governed by Jewish religious law.
Tamir Levital, a demonstrator, told Channel 12 News, “We came to protest against messianic religious Zionism that is destroying Israel.
The same rabbis who teach kids in this community also feed religious Zionism’s leaders, who are leading Israel toward becoming a halachic state of Jewish supremacy and racism.
There will be no Torah law. Protesters were heard yelling. During the protest, which included Israeli flags and smoke flares, one individual was detained.
After a brief lull during a break in the proposed judicial reform legislation that has resumed in the Knesset, the protest movement against the right-wing and religious coalition led by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is active once more.
In the latest attempt by opponents of the government’s judicial reform project to stop Israel, thousands of protestors attempted to block access to Ben-Gurion Airport on Monday, leading to the detention of dozens of people.
Earlier in the day, hundreds of demonstrators obstructed highways leading to Haifa Port, blocking cars access to Israel’s main freight route.
