Calls to Protect Tomb of Samuel Kollel from Eviction


The small Samuel the Prophet Kollel, located on the site of the Tomb of Samuel complex near Jerusalem's Ramot neighborhood, may be in danger of being dismantled by the IDF Civil Administration. Retired military court judge Adrian Agassi sent an urgent letter about the matter on Monday to the Civil Administration, Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon and others. He argued that institution of Torah learning was established in 1999 with approval from the Civil Administration and the Deputy Minister of Religious Affairs and called for the recently issued eviction orders to be rescinded.
