Jerusalem Accuses Haredi-Controlled Housing Ministry Of Skewing New Affordable Housing In Favor Of Haredim

It's a shame that they have to ration affordable housing. It would be best if they can build or make sure that there is an adequate supply for all that need.


I've been meaning to ask this for a while- why are are the photos that accompany stories usually so washed out and grainy?

This is what you get when there is a segment of your population that is: a)feeling entitled, b)find that truth is reserved for those of their own kind.

Essentially, although they are ultra-religious, they believe they are justified in lying to the state and obtaining by any means low cost anything, especially at the expense of the secular majority. This needs to be slowed down. I suggest that each family must have both adults working for a living. The applicants must submit to an interview, and must show employment records and letters from their employers.


@alter kocker - and filed tax returns.


Tax returns? Who declares all cash?


"The tenders in Ramot and Pisgat Ze'ev are intended for all Jerusalem's population groups.

Dors that include Arabs or are they just referring to jewish population groups? My guess is the later.


The same issue exists in Borough Park. (The Culver El affordable housing)


And in Ramapo.

I heard that Shmarya lives in a windowless dark dank basement with a super scary mote around it. He reads by the light of his cat's glaring eyes.


"...why are are the photos that accompany stories usually so washed out and grainy?..."

No need to drag Shmarya's living conditions into this - it just looks like a case of too much sharpening in Photoshop of a low-resolution original.
