Kindergarten politics

A new project for a complex of kindergartens on the seam street between Ramat Sharett and Ramat Danya is troubling the waters at Safra Square, and no bridge over them is appearing on the horizon. According to the municipality’s spokesman, there is still no decision as to which community these kindergartens are going to serve. According to the Hitorerut movement and its leader at city council, this is only the first step in an attempt to completely change the character of these so far secular neighborhoods, and therefore has to be prevented.
