Ahead of a march and rally scheduled to take place Saturday night, Rehov Kaplan in Tel Aviv, a major traffic artery, was closed to traffic Saturday morning. Other Tel Aviv streets will be closed Saturday evening ahead of the third weekly march put on by the housing movement calling for "social justice."

Saturday evening at 7 p.m., stretches of Ibn Gvirol, Dizengoff, Ben Zion and Rothschild will be closed ahead of the march, which organizers said they hoped would draw more than the 150,000 who took to the streets last Saturday across the country. Kaplan was expected to reopen at 4 a.m. Sunday morning, while the other streets were expected to reopen for traffic shortly after midnight.
