Haredi Demonstration against government taking over Rashbi Kever

 See more photos HERE !

Thousands were demonstrating at Jerusalem’s Kikar Shabbat tonight. The Israeli government is planning to turn the Kever of the Rashbi (Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai) in Meron into an international tourist site. Meaning that the Ministry of Tourism wants to ship thousands of Christians from all over the world to the holy site. 

Can anyone explain to me what Christian have to do with the Tanna Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai ? If Rabbi Shimon knew this, he would beat the Christians from his grave site as fast as he could. 

Tonight, the Edah HaCharedit was demonstrating at Kikar Shabbat (Ge’ulah / Mea Shearim. The Toldot Aharon Rebbe was there, as well as his brother, the Toldot Avraham Yitzchak Rabbe. Further participants: The Rebbe of Rachmastrivka, Pinsk – Karlin, Stropkov, Mishkenot HaRoim, Rabbi Wosner and many others.


  1. Since Kabalah became popular in the non-Jewish world, anyone deeply connected to it becomes an "attraction".

    Also many non jews visit the grave of the Maharal in Prague. The Golem legend turned him into an attraction.

    The problem is that the Jewish Kabbalah has nothing to do with the non - Jewish world.
