Hundreds of members of the Meah Shearim community and supporters protested at Kikar Shabbos on Wednesday, decrying the recent violence that has plagued the community.
The protest was against the violence seen in Meah Shearim and Geula over recent weeks, which culminated in the violent beating of a Meah Shearim resident by a group of chassidim a night earlier. The victim of that beating remains in Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital.
Participants in the event had harsh words for Gerrer Chassidim, accusing them of trying to take over their community.
Mrs. Miriam Hirschman, the wife of the victim of the beating in Geula, told Kikar Shabbat on Wednesday night that she received a telephone threat saying “we are going to kill you”.
