Netanyahu to ask High Court of Justice to allow state to relocate Givat Ze’ev synagogue

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday night agreed to appeal to the High Court of Justice to delay, for one last time, the demolition of the Ayelet HaShachar in the Givat Ze’ev settlement to allow for the structure to be relocated to a nearby plot of land.
The High Court of Justice had ordered the synagogue to be demolished by November 18th, after it was discovered that documents with regard to the purchase of the property from its Palestinian owners had been forged.

The community of worshipers who have used the synagogue for the last two decades were not involved in the purchase of the property and have spent the last year fighting to save the synagogue.
