The High Court of Justice on Monday agreed to allow a group of five protesters against Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s proposed settlement and outpost building freeze to hold a quiet vigil on the streets where Shas Ministers Ariel Atias (Housing and Construction) and Eli Yishai (Interior) live in Jerusalem’s Har Nof neighborhood.

The hours of the vigil and the exact distance from the ministers’ homes will be determined in coordination with the police.

The police originally refused to grant a permit to the protesters, saying they could only hold the vigil at the entrance to the neighborhood.

Attorney Itzhak Bam, who represented Roi David Reeder in the petition, said that under the circumstances, this was the most the protesters could achieve.
