Rabbis condemn new Tiberias Water Show


Orthodox Rabbis are condemning the new water show in Tiberias called "Tiverium". On the other hand, the three regular daily water shows have different content and are very nice to watch.

Location: The promenade at the Kinneret (Sea of Galilee).Time: 7pm, 8pm and 9pm.

Now, a new additional show is coming up showing the history of Israel's third holy city, Tiberias (Tveryia). The Rabbis are warning Jews not to watch the new show, as it includes the false Christian Meshiach J. standing on the Kinneret. Watching the show would be "Avodah Zarah - Idol - Worship".

The Municipality of Tiberias is running these shows and the justification is that Tiberias needs tourism (also Christian tourism) and this particular water show "Tiverium" would be only watched by hotel guests. Mainly Christians. The Municipality denies the accusation of offending the Jewish public.

In fact, I have seen many signs in Tiberias announcing the new show, and those signs are in HEBREW and not only in English !

The regular daily water show in Tiberias. Many local Haredim go there as well.
