The rabbis say they had an agreement with the shopping center made before it opened that in exchange for not protesting against it or trying in other ways to hold up construction, the center would adhere to haredi modesty standards, Shabbat laws, etc.
The rabbis claim the center has not upheld its part of the deal, and now that it has decided to add a third floor to the center – which, the rabbis claim, will be “worse than the existing two floors” – the rabbis have decided to issue a ban on shopping there.
The center's management responded by noting that it welcomes customers from all walks of life, but it will continue to do whatever it can legally to accomadate haredi modesty demands, and it will continue to meet with local haredi rabbis as it has done from the beginning.
