Parallel Hareidi Gatherings in Europe


While hundreds of thousands of hareidi Jews converged on Jerusalem, Sunday, to protest cuts to state yeshiva funding and legislation to draft hareidim into the military, similar gatherings were held in the Stamford Hill section of London and in Gateshead, as well as in Switzerland. Antwerp held a prayer gathering, having kicked off the weekend with a similar event on Thursday.

A similar event is being considered in the United States, pending the obtaining of the necessary permits.
