Beit Shemesh's Cohen Slams Attack on Religious Woman

Eli Cohen, who ran for Mayor of the city of Beit Shemesh, on Sunday called on the city’s hareidi leadership to condemn an attack last week of a religious 25-year-old woman, who was attacked by a hareidi man who claimed she was dressed immodestly.

“We cannot let incident such as this slide, so they will not become routine," Cohen said, adding that he expected the hareidi community in Beit Shemesh to condemn and denounce such acts. "Otherwise, in their silence they approve the act and encourage the next attack,” he said.
