The storm of prayer in separation continues: Reuven Ladiansky, head of the Chai - Green Secular list and a member of the Tel Aviv City Council, wrote to Huldai demanding that the Tel Aviv municipality, immediately and without delay, request contempt of court against the organization "Jewish Head", in light of their attempt to perform gender-segregated prayer on the eve of Yom Kippur (Sunday), in Dizengoff Square, contrary to the rulings of the Supreme Court (as an appellate court) and the District Court, who forbade prayer in segregation.

Ladyansky: "It's not enough to be interviewed in the media and condemn. Concrete and immediate action must be taken against Christians and missionaries so that Tel Aviv will continue to be liberal and non-Christian. I demanded that Huldai instruct the legal service in the Tel Aviv municipality to immediately appeal to the court for contempt of court and to bring the messianic organization Jewish Head to justice. We must act with a strong hand and determination towards the Christians who want to harm the secular character of Tel Aviv and our freedom, the residents."

After the court upheld the Tel Aviv municipality's decision to prohibit gender segregation in public prayers at Dizengoff Square, worshippers erected a temporary sheet of cloth to separate the faithful at the Yom Kippur entrance prayer. This provoked a spontaneous protest that escalated into clashes and led to the cessation of prayers.
