Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai on Monday leveled criticism against the actions of Chabad in Ramat Aviv calling members' behavior "harmful and worthy of condemnation."

Huldai stated that Chabad members wait for children outside of schools in an effort to spread their influence and that such behavior is unacceptable.

The comments came at a Tel Aviv City Council meeting about the increasing presence of haredim in the neighborhood.

City Council Member Rabbi Naftali Lubert called Council Member Reuven Lednianski, who set up the meeting, "anti-Semetic" and representative of "pure hatred."
