Tel Aviv Rabbis Campaign for Sabbath Observance

As municipal leaders in Tel Aviv debate whether to allow public bus service in Israel’s second most-populous city to operate on the Sabbath, pulpit rabbis launched a massive campaign to encourage residents to observe the Jewish holy day.

Every family in the city will receive a flyer describing the need for a day of rest, especially in today’s hectic world. Rabbi Yossi Gerlitzky, director of Chabad-Lubavitch of Tel Aviv, is among the signatories.

“Only Shabbat… is capable to make our lives tranquil, to give us back our strength, and fill the soul with amazing spirituality,” began the letter, which went on to quote the commandment to honor the Sabbath.
