      El'ad: No Mikveh Cleaning Due to Municipal Debt

      Rabbis in the religious community of El'ad - near the 1949 armistice line, east of Tel Aviv - protested to associates of Mayor Yitzchak 'Idan, Sunday, after managers of the company that cleans the religious city's ritual baths suspended service, Friday, over eight months of unpaid bills. The rabbis warned that majority hareidi-religious community of more tha 36,000 would start to protest if something is not done about the matter.

      The mayor was forced to call security, over the weekend, when some employees of the company burst into his office.
