The Meretz faction in the Jerusalem Municipality on Tuesday appealed a decision by the municipal planning and construction committee to expand the Beit Orot Yeshiva in east Jerusalem, Army Radio reported. The committee approved on Monday the construction of four new residential buildings adjacent to the yeshiva, effectively creating a new Jewish neighborhood of 24 families on the Mount of Olives.
