Business Faces Boycott for Not Desecrating Sabbath

A movie theater in Jerusalem is being threatened with a boycott over its decision to close for the Sabbath and Jewish holidays.

The pro-secular group Yisrael Hofsheet (Free Israel) has called on its supporters to boycott the Cinema City movie theater for not opening on Saturday – a decision which the group termed a sign of “hareidi religious coercion in Barkat’s Jerusalem.”
