Silvan Shalom to Ulpana Neighborhood Friday


Deputy Prime Minister Silvan Shalom is scheduled to visit the Ulpana (girls' religious high school) neighborhood of the Binyamin-region Jewish community of Beit El, Friday morning, at the invitation of Chairman Ya'akov Katz of the National Union party and local council chairman Moshe Rosenboim. The neighborhood is scheduled to be uprooted on May 1st, under a Supreme Court order, based on Arab claims of land ownership.

The state is scheduled to ask the court, Friday, to defer the uprooting by 90 days.
