    Haredi Protest in Mea Shearim

    Thousands of people from the ultra-Orthodox community gathered in
    Jerusalem's Mea She'arim neighborhood in the early hours of Monday
    morning to protest against plans to draft haredim into national
    service and the IDF. The protest was called in light of the coming
    proposals of the Keshev Committee which has been tasked with
    formulating a new law for the recruitment of haredim. Leading rabbis
    of the anti-Zionist Eda Haredit organization led the impassioned
    prayers of their followers who were donned in sackcloth.
