‘Police to Bar Private Busses from Entering Meron’


Haredi (Ultra-Orthodox) media reported this morning (Wednesday) that against previous agreements, the police will not allow private buses to drive through the gates and enter the community of Meron during the Lag BaOmer festivities.  

“Haredi MKs recounted meetings with the police and transportation companies in preparation for the Lag BaOmer festivities,” a Bnei Brak resident and longtime traveler to Meron for Lag BaOmer stated, “but the State does not want to change the way things work there, they don’t want to invest in the area seriously… but we will continue to vit the site despite the difficulties.”
