Israel's Ultra-Orthodox in School Row

Friday, 18 Jun 2010 06:11 AM

JERUSALEM - Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein advised the High Court of Justice on Wednesday to refrain from enforcing jail sentences for the 22 ultra-Orthodox women charged with violating an order to send their Ashkenazi daughters to school with their Sephardi peers.

The mothers had appealed to the High Court after failing to show up for their two-week jail sentencing on Thursday. The attorney general responded to the appeal by saying he supported the stance of welfare agencies that the women should remain at home with their children.

Thirty-five men, fathers to the Ashkenazi girls attending an illegally segregated school in the West Bank settlement of Immanuel, arrived at the Ma'asiyahu prison earlier Thursday evening to serve a two-week sentence.
