Tel Aviv Shabbat Committee fails to reach consensus

After the issue of Israel Railways work on Shabbat proved contentious, the larger issue of opening commercial businesses on Shabbat in Tel Aviv proved unworkable as well for a committee of five directors- general of relevant government ministries who worked on the issue for months.

After failing to reach a consensus, the committee headed by Prime Minister’s Office director-general Eli Groner will release what a source on the committee called “options” for solving a dispute over a Tel Aviv municipal bylaw passed in 2014, which permits the opening of the stores in the city.
