of the scheduled events at this week’s Shaon Horef Cultural Festival, the Angelmayer show Shushka, which includes some nudity, has outraged religious representatives at city council – to the point that councilman Arieh King (United Jerusalem) resigned on Tuesday from the coalition. Despite the protestations leading up to the show, city legal adviser Elie Malka ruled on Sunday that there is no legal reason why the municipality, which is financing the festival, should interfere in its content, so the program – scheduled to take place twice this month – proceeded as planned on Monday evening.
