Chevron Yeshiva protests: "They want to build a girls college next to us"

Jerusalem is already accustomed to the routine of the struggle of the character of the city between the secular and ultra-Orthodox. Now, for the first time, a struggle is evolving between the charedi and dati leumi public on the background of national land allocations.

Religious Teachers College named RAM Lifshitz filed a request for an area in the city. Last week the allocations committee at the Jerusalem municipality reported that it intends to discuss the provision of space in four months. This is an area located in front of the yeshiva of Kneset Yisrael-Chevron, in Givat Mordechai, Jerusalem.

Yeshiva managers and leaders objected to the idea of setting up a college for women's studies, opposite the yeshiva - and summoned the representatives of Yahadut Hatorah in the Jerusalem Municipality to discuss the issue.

On Thursday Deputy Mayor Yitzchak Pindrus, came for a meeting with leaders of Yeshivat Chevron. They argued that a college cannot be established in front of the yeshiva, despite the fact that there is a separation between boys and girls and girls may learn in another campus.

Pindrus promised that the party will mobilize and prevent the allocation of the area. But here they are likely to encounter differences of opinion with the religious council members. David Hadari, Deputy Mayor of the Mifdal says to B'Chadrei Charedim that Givat Mordechai is "a national religious neighborhood and most of its residents are national religious."

Hadari says: "There is a very large shortage of public institutions for the national religious stream and representatives will continue to operate that the area in the neighborhood will be for the national religious public institution ".

Hadari does not exclude the possibility to allocate the space for another religious institution, should another suitable space be found for College Lifshitz, but clarified that the allocation of the land for a charedi institution "would not be appropriate."
