“We meet twice a week with lawmakers and legislators to discuss matters pertaining to the communal life of the Chareidi community in London”, says Shapira.
“The meetings usually take place in the afternoon hours, but specifically today It was rescheduled for 12:00 PM”.
Shapira explains that, “the meeting was rescheduled because we had to meet with sanitation officials to discuss more frequent garbage removals in the Chareidi areas, since before Pesach one removal a day is not enough”.
Shapira goes on to describe the Hashgacha pratis that took place, “I left the parliament building after the meeting was over and headed home. When I arrived home, I heard of the terrible terror attack. There is no doubt that I was saved by a miracle, because I always arrive (at parliament) at the exact hour that the terror attack took place”.
Shapira finishes off by saying, “I thank Hashem that I was saved from the terror attack, and I wish the injured a speedy recovery”.
