Legislation to lower volume on mosque delayed for now

A proposed law to ban mosques from using loudspeakers for their call to prayers was withdrawn from a scheduled vote on Sunday by the legislation’s sponsor, Bayit Yehudi MK Moti Yogev, in order to make changes to the bill.

Yogev’s bill would define the use of loudspeakers by all places of worship as “strong or unreasonable” as part of the existing Law for Preventing Nuisances, although dispensation could be granted in specific instances by the interior minister.
