Din Meron KDin Har Habayit

Deputy Minister Meir Porush just complained and warned about Meron on Lag B'Omer.

Current reports suggest that the government is planning to limit the pilgrimage to Meron on Lag B'Omer.

Porush said, when he heard this, paraphrasing Ariel Sharon's famous statement, din tel aviv kdin netzarim - the status of Netzarim is the same as that of Tel Aviv, Din Meron kdin Har Habayit. Porush added that if next week during Ramadan they will allow a hundred thousand pilgrims to Har Habayit, there is no reason to limit the pilgrims to Kever Rashbi in meron on Lag B'Omer.

While Porush might be right about the numbers of pilgrims allowed, he should also remember that Jews are not allowed to pray on Har Habayit. If he says the status of Har Habayit and that of Meron are one and the same, he might get his Jews banned from praying in meron....

  1. The law, per Israeli Supreme Court, is that Jews are allowed unrestricted access on Har haBayit.
