A sea of black: Thousands of ultra-Orthodox Israelis participated today in the funeral of a prominent rabbi in Jerusalem, flouting the country's ban on large public gatherings amid the pandemic

The phenomenon has undermined the country's aggressive vaccination campaign to bring a raging outbreak under control and threatened to hurt Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in March elections

Маски есть, но далеко не на всех одухотворённых лицах.

Shocking pictures showed the funeral procession for Rabbi Meshulam Soloveitchik, who died at age 99 and had recently suffered from Covid-19, wending its way through the streets of Jerusalem in the latest display of ultra-Orthodox Israelis' refusal to honour coronavirus restrictions

Кому не лень, посчитайте, пожалуйста, меньше или больше в Питере за Навального вышло.

Densely packed throngs of people gathered outside the rabbi's home in a public rejection of restrictions on outdoor gatherings of more than 10 people

The vast majority of the ultra-Orthodox Jews were not wearing face masks - and for those who had donned the protective face covering, many were wearing it around their neck or below their nose

Police officers blocked intersections to traffic to allow participants to pass, but appeared to take no action to prevent the illegal assembly

Крепкие там у них балконы, не обвалились.

Israeli media said Soloveitchik, a leading religious scholar who headed a number of well-known seminaries, had recently suffered from COVID-19

At the same time, Israel has vaccinated over 3 million of its citizens - a third of its population and one of the highest rates per capita in the world - in what has become the world's fastest vaccine rollout.

Надо полагать, все вакцинированные. Страна уколола 3 000 000 своих.

Despite a third national lockdown, cases and deaths have surged among the part of the population that has not yet been vaccinated. Officials blame this on highly communicable foreign variants of the coronavirus

A disproportionate number of Israel's coronavirus cases are within the country's ultra-Orthodox minority. The strictly religious community, which makes up around 11 per of Israel's 9.2 million people, has accounted for around one-third of the confirmed cases of the virus

Many ultra-Orthodox sects have kept schools, seminaries and synagogues open, and held mass weddings and funerals in violation of the law. Recent weeks have seen violent clashes between members of the ultra-Orthodox community flouting the rules and police officers trying to enforce them

Ultra-Orthodox leaders say they have been unfairly singled out and argue the country's secular public does not understand the importance of public prayers and religious studies in their community

Gideon Saar, a right-wing Israeli politician challenging Netanyahu in upcoming parliamentary elections, criticized the prime minister on Twitter, saying 'the pictures from Jerusalem prove that Netanyahu has given up on enforcing the law for political reasons. This won't happen in a government headed by me. There will be one law for all and it will be enforced'

The government imposed the movement restrictions and closure of schools and non-essential businesses last month in an effort to clamp down on Israel's runaway pandemic

As of Saturday, 1.7 million Israelis had received the second dose of the Pfizer Inc. vaccine more than a week prior, achieving the maximum 95% protection, the Health Ministry said

The Prime Minister wants to extend the lockdown, which is due to expire on Sunday night, but faces opposition from his coalition partner and political rival, Defence Minister Benny Gantz.

Israel's inoculation programme does not extend to the approximately 5.2 million Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, where local authorities are organizing their vaccination programme separately. Pictured: Ultra Orthodox Jews take part in a funeral for the Rabbi

In a clear breach of coronavirus lockdown rules, scores of Ultra-Orthodox Jews gather for the funeral. Many did not wear face masks

У меня, как у человека чрезвычайно приземлённого, при таком скоплении народа, который продолжительное время находится в густой толпе, всего один вопрос: "А где суть?". И Сара, как в старом питерском анкдоте, отвечает: "А ссуть они, Руфочка, в твоё парадное".
