We know that this government is disconnected from half of the people even before it started working, but 10,000 Beitar fans (and another five of Ness Ziona) proved that football is played on Saturday at 3:00 p.m.
Bezalel Smotrich saw in the Teddy stands many of his voters with the boy or girl on their shoulders and hundreds of women taking selfies from the blown-up Teddy.
The "traditional" and "Shomarat Hashabat" team brought its largest number of spectators this season, precisely in a game held during the winter Shabbat and against a municipal team that doesn't even care about itself.
In the stands sat thousands of children for whom this was the first football game, the voice of "La Familia" fell silent and for a moment it seemed to us that Eli Ohana, Sami Malka or Shaloy were coming up to play and not the talented and oxygenated Jordan Shua.

Due to an agreement with the franchise, Beitar did not play on Shabbat all these years and lost generations of fans.
At the YMCA, fans used to come on foot with a Torah scroll in their hand, this is also possible in 2023 in Teddy.
It is possible to be a person who prays on Shabbat morning in a synagogue and then comes to football on his day of rest.
Not on the first at 21:00, or on the second at 20:00 in Kiryat Shmona.
The general public loves football, but as soon as it is not on Shabbat, they keep it away from the game.
In Israel there is a status quo in everything, except football, this is the only field in which the religious won over the years.
The opinion of the footballers, the businessmen, the politicians and certainly the journalists is not relevant here.
The public for whom the games are played and is the one who pays a lot of money for entrance tickets votes with their feet: football is played on Saturday.
And not just Teddy.
