Oops… sorry

Some of us may still remember it: Three years ago, at the end of the election day for city council of 2013, the big surprise was the decision of the Ger Hassidim to break with the decision of the rabbis in the haredi sector and to support candidate Nir Barkat. This, considered then as no less than an earthquake in haredi society, again brought Barkat to the mayor’s office at Safra Square and left the rest of the sector, mostly the Lithuanian haredim, with a sore taste of defeat. It also left a loser – candidate Moshe Lion.
