Jerusalem's district court accepted on Wednesday an appeal by the Association for Civil Rights, and decreed that the Education Ministry and the Jerusalem municipality must exercise their authority to prevent discrimination in the city's haredi seminaries for girls. The appeal, which was filed two months ago, included evidence that the Beit Yaakov schools for girls had a quota of 30% for the acceptance of girls from Sephardic families.
