High Court to West Bank parents: Desegregate school or face jail time

The court's decision continues the ongoing saga in Immanuel, a settlement in the West Bank, where parents are attempting to segregate Ashkenazi and Sephardi girls.

"No court verdict requires the approval of any rabbi," said Supreme Court Justice Edmond Levy on Tuesday during a court hearing on the segregation at the ultra-Orthodox Beit Yaakov girls' school in Immanuel.

The hearing revolved around the continued violation of a High Court of Justice ruling forbidding the segregation of Sephardi and Ashkenazi students. A compromise was supposedly achieved between the religious school board and the parents, but the Ashkenazi girls' parents rejected the compromise and refuse to allow their daughters to return to school.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Not that the Ashkenzi Jewish families are being racist against the Sephardic Jewish kids and families in their community, or anything like that, right?!? :-)
