Ultra-Orthodox Jews protest Bnei Brak Memorial Day ceremony

Several dozen ultra-Orthodox Israelis are protesting a Memorial Day ceremony being held by other ultra-Orthodox Jews in the central city of Bnei Brak.

The police are breaking up the demonstration.

The demonstrators are railing against the ceremony and the “Holocaust” being perpetrated against Judaism, referring to the secularization of the State of Israel.
