Eda Haredit rabbis cancel planned protest-prayer in Jerusalem

Rabbis from Eda Haredit, the ultra-orthodox anti-Zionist sect which was prominent in protests over the opening of a parking lot in Jerusalem on Shabbat last week, called off a protest-prayer which was planned to take place on Friday evening. The move comes following Mayor Nir Barkat's accepting police recommendation not to open the parking lot in the coming two weekends.
