Jerusalem secular icon surrenders to pressures of religious coercion
A plaque on the outer wall of the Restobar commemorates the eleven victims of a 2002 suicide bomber attack when the property, adjacent to the PM's official residence, was known as Café Moment. Jerusalem, Israel. 19-March-2013.
The Restobar, a very popular restaurant-bar-café which has been open to the public on the Jewish Sabbath for eight years has surrendered to religious pressure to observe the laws of Kashrut and close on Saturdays and has closed altogether.
