Bnei Brak Rabbis Nix Rentals to African Illegals
Rabbis in Bnei Brak have issued a request to residents not to rent property to African illegal immigrants. At a meeting held in the city, the rabbis also ruled that according to Jewish law, it is permissible to “inform” on Jews who do rent apartments to African illegal immigrants.
The move is seen as a rare example of cooperation with secular community leaders, who are calling for a ban against allowing the infiltrators into the city.
