In your absence
The local committee for businesses licenses rarely draws attention, but it did exactly that recently.

Noting that the secular members of this committee skipped a recent meeting, the haredi representatives voted not to renew the licenses of two of the most prominent clubs open on Shabbat – the Zappa and the Justice. These clubs are located close to the First Station compound, long a red flag in haredi eyes.
