Tel Aviv Chief Rabbi Yisrael Meir Lau said he is filled with a deep feeling disappointment by a decision by the Tel Aviv-Jaffa city council to seek permission from the Transportation Ministry to operate public transportation on Shabbat. He asked Tel Aviv-Jaffa Mayor Ron Huldai to reverse the decision.

"This decision harms the history of Tel Aviv, which was founded 103 years ago as the first Hebrew city," Lau wrote in a statement. In asking Huldai to reverse the council's decision, Lau said he was writing in the name of the thousands of people who keep Shabbat who supported his election."
