A letter of threats was placed at the entrance to the apartment of a Tiberias resident earlier this week, in light of the fact that those who sent the letter were unhappy with her "immodest" attire. At the same time, they cut off the water to her apartment and placed another threatening letter on the faucet. Following the threats, the family decided to leave the apartment and look for another apartment in the city, and at the same time filed a complaint with the police.
The woman, Hadas Madmon, told Walla! Because she discovered the letter when she returned home in the afternoon with her children. "In the letter, they called to dress modestly before doing anything even more unpleasant than that," Madmon added. The letter also said she had to leave the neighborhood.
When she entered her house and opened the faucets, she realized there was no water in the pipes. "I called the neighbors and they didn't answer me. I told my husband to buy water on the way home. When he arrived, he opened the utility cabinet and saw a note saying 'Be careful' on the water tap of our apartment, which they closed for us." She said that two threatening letters in the same style had been placed at the entrance to the apartment in recent weeks. "I thought it was just and threw away the letters, but I see it hasn't stopped," she said. "I'm not afraid, but it's not pleasant to live in such an environment, I'm not built for it."

According to Madmon, she is "modestly dressed, but wears short shirts, does not wear socks and the headscarf is not a full handkerchief. That's their problem. This is already a third letter. It's strange that something like this happens. I define myself as a religious woman. Women also verbally approached me and asked me, 'What do you have?' and made faces," she said.
Madmon is married with two children. She grew up in Safed and later lived with her family in central Israel. When a new residential neighborhood began to be built in Tiberias near Poriya Junction, the couple decided to buy an apartment there and return north. They were the second family to buy an apartment in the building where they live. She said she didn't know it was going to be a neighborhood where almost all of its residents are ultra-Orthodox. "In Safed I grew up in a mixed neighborhood and I have never encountered such phenomena," she said.
