The rabbi of the ultra-Orthodox town, Modi’in Ilith sent letters to three home owners: “no residence may be rent under any circumstances to foreign workers, and there is no permission to do so”. A cleaning contractor, residing in the town, who employs several Eritrean refugees and knows the owners in question told Ynet that the rabbi demanded they evict the lodgers by this weekend. According to him, the owners tend to obey the order since they feel threatened by various social sanctions, such as the removal of their children from their schools. (Hebrew)
