Daycare center in Bnei Brak rejects national-religious children for sake of Haredis

What they attempted to do is in violation of the trade industry's rules. This at a center that was for both Haredis and those known as "national religious" whose customs are simpler:
A daycare facility in Bnei Brak notified national-religious parents that their children would no longer be able to enroll in the now "haredi only" facility.

"We will not have anyone belonging to the national-religious sector enroll in the daycare," the facility's operator was quoted as telling a parent over the phone. [...]

"At the end of last week I heard from some parents that not only has enrollment begun, but it will conclude by the weekend," Tehila, mother to an eight-month-old, described the sudden policy change.

"When I asked the kindergarten teacher for an explanation, she told me I haven't been notified since the daycare will be available next year only for haredim."

The new policy, prohibited by the Industry, Trade and Labor Ministry which supervises the facility, was defended by the daycare's manager Alharar that same evening on a phone call.

Alharar told Tehila he has no choice, since haredi leaders forbid their followers' children from enrolling in his facility because it is used by the national-religious sector as well.
So he's resorting to discrimination all for the sake of more money! The ministry responded, making clear that such steps are against the law, and the manager backtracked. He'll do well to avoid all that in the future.
