A new era

The plan ready for more than a year has been kept secret from almost all city council members. Totally approved and supported by the head of the local planning and construction committee, the idea is to build a completely new, wellplanned neighborhood for haredim, remote from the rest of the city, which would take into consideration all the particular housing needs of the sector – including succa balconies – and would put an end to the mass entry of haredi families into secular neighborhoods.
