Beit Warsha (next to Mea Shearim)


Unfortunately, I am not too updated regarding "Beit Warsha - Warzaw House - בית ווארשה" in Ge'ulah / Mea Shearim. As far as I know, the owner of the small haredi neighbourhood near Kikar Shabbat and next to the Dushinsky Center (at Kikar Supnik) is Chassidut Gur. A little while ago, the Gerrer Chassidim where planning to demolish the houses of Beit Warsha and build a new haredi shopping mall. Gur claimed that some Beit Warsha inhabitants hadn't paid their rent and the police came to throw them out. The Edah Charedit went wild because many of their members live in Beit Warsha.

Nevertheless, here are a few photos I made last Thursday. Very early in the morning indeed.
