Zionist Orthodox Girls School Bans Grammar School Students From Public Library

Ziva Eliyahu, the principal of the Moriah right-wing Zionist Orthodox girls grammar school in Jerusalem, banned the school’s students from checking out books from the city library, the Israel Broadcasting Authority’s Reshet Bet reported.
Eliyahu reportedly offered to allow the students to use other libraries where she said there is no fear that there will be books with inappropriate content.
Even though the school gets state funding, Israel’s Education Ministry said it had no problem with the ban because it comported with school rules signed by all parents and students.
Last year, Reshet Bet reported that Eliyahu confiscated students cellphones, searched through them to try to find immodest content, and then lectured students about the “non-tzniut” [immodest] content she said she found.
