Haredis condemn makeshift Jerusalem beach as "abomination"

They see pornographic imagery around every corner, and can't appreciate the pleasure of relaxation and getting vitamin D energy:
The haredi rabbinic and political leadership, along with the community’s media, has roundly denounced the creation of a simulated beach in Jerusalem, set to open on Sunday, claiming that it will cause Sabbath desecration and immorality.

An imitation beach, 2,000 square meters in size, has been created at the First Train Station complex in south Jerusalem, with wading pools, musical performances, a surfing simulator, and other attractions, in order to give Jerusalemites a taste of the summer in the hill-top city.

But the haredi community is up in arms over the idea, claiming that the “beach” will undermine the sanctity of the holy city.
I guess they think nobody in remote times in this burg ever wanted to enjoy some fun in the sun after work and prayer, eh? They must think everybody here dressed and acted literally like what goes on in later Saudi Arabia under sharia. Shameful. Even in Jerusalem, people can enjoy a good rest by an artificial beach, and it does not undermine the holiness of the city. Far as I'm concerned, it's practically compatible, even on Sabbath.

And if the Haredi leaderships don't like it, they can always stay far away. Nobody needs their babbling know-it-alls raising tons of petty complaints.

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
