Youth Group Calls for True Day of Rest in Tel Aviv


The youth wing of the Torah and Avoda Faithful organization passed out flyers in Tel Aviv on Wednesday. The flyer were in response to the recent decision by the Tel Aviv Municipality to allow buses to run on Saturday. They read, "No One Way Trip. Let's talk seriously about the status quo."

The head of the organization Shmuel Shattah stated, "The Sabbath will be kept better if we refresh the conventions of sixty years ago and adapt them to current realities." He warned against Saturday becoming a "shopping day without social justice" and called to "return the original Sabbath day of rest."
