      Massive Shabbat Reception Slated for Nachalat Shimon


      Land of Israel activists have massive Shabbat reception (Kabbalat Shabbat) for the Nachalat Shimon (Sheikh Jarach) neighborhood in Jerusalem Friday, in response to harassment of the neighborhood's Jews by anarchists on Fridays. A similar observance drew 150 last Friday.

      Organizer Shlomo Zalman Korman told Arutz Sheva on Thursday, "It makes us happy to see such wide support for Jewish settlement in the neighborhood, and we call on the community of lovers of the Land of Israel to come tomorrow and express solidarity with Jewish settlement in the eastern part of the city."

      During the Chanukah festival next week, there will be a nightly candle-lighting ceremony attended by rabbis, Knesset members and other public figures.
