New Yeshiva for East Jerusalem Approved


The Committee for Planning and Building in Jerusalem has approved the construction plans for Yeshivat Ohr Sameah (academy of advanced Torah studies) in the Shimon Hatzaddik neighborhood.

Construction plans include a 9-story structure, which was approved despite the staunch objections of the leftists on the Committee.  Two weeks ago the plans were brought before the Committee, but then suddenly were bumped off of the agenda.
