Jerusalem - Tens of thousands of ultra-Orthodox Jews protested in the Tel Aviv suburb of Bnei Brak Friday night after a court allowed work on the light-rail on the Sabbath.

The Tel Aviv District Court ruled earlier Friday that essential work could take place on Shabbat if not carrying it out might endanger human life. Above-ground work must be concealed from sight, it added.

Police said some protesters were stopped while trying to trespass on the work site, near Highway 4.

The court was ruling on an appeal of an order prohibiting work on the light-rail on Shabbat.

Unlike the alt-right lemming binyumin nussenyuhi, these guys are actually doing something to protect Israel by promoting Shabbos observance. I say FEH to the alt-right and the orange sheitel.
