South Tel-Avivians Plea: 'Protect the Sanctity of Yom Kippur'
"In southern neighbors of the city where a large population of refugees and infiltrators live, the people naturally have no connection whatsoever to Yom Kippur. From their point of view, it's just another day off where they can do whatever they want and celebrate without interference. Thus, instead of the usual atmosphere of Yom Kippur which exists all over the country, we have loud music, barbecues in the middle of the street and other distractions that affect the atmosphere of the special day, right under our windows. This situation repeats itself every year, and it is intolerable."
