Government called to protect hassidic community from secular ‘provocateurs’

Religious Services Minister David Azoulai has demanded that Interior Security Minister Gilad Erdan take action against “provocateurs” in Arad who have harassed members of the Gur hassidic community worshiping at a synagogue in the city. 

Azoulai’s letter comes against a background of severe inter-communal strife in Arad, where relations between the secular and haredi communities, in particular the Gur community, have been become increasingly rancorous.
