State Commission of Inquiry into the Meron Disaster: One week after the government approved the establishment of the commission of inquiry, Supreme Court President Esther Hayut ruled today (Sunday) that the committee will be chaired by retired Supreme Court President Miriam Naor, and will be accompanied by former Bnei Brak mayor Rabbi Madrachi Karlitz and reserve general and businessman Shlomo Yanai.
Rabbi Karlitz previously served as a member and Da’at Tal on the issue of recruiting yeshivas to the IDF. General Yanai previously served as General of the Southern Command and head of the General Staff’s Planning Division Since retiring from the IDF, General Yanai has been managing leading companies in the economy. He also serves as chairman of the Alam Association – an association for at-risk youth.
Among the factors expected to be investigated by the committee: former ministers Ohana, Deri and Litzman, Commissioner Kobi Shabtai, North Shimon Lavi and senior officials of the Center for the Development of Holy Places.
“Today, the 17th of Tammuz, is the day when, according to Jewish tradition, the walls of the city of Jerusalem were breached. “Who will give and the committee whose members are appointed today will do for repair and a stable building, in both social and safety aspects,” said Justice Hayut. Defense Minister Bnei Gantz, who brought the government’s approval of the committee, said: “Welcomes the appointment of retired Supreme Court President Justice Miriam Naor. To chair the Meron State Commission of Inquiry, which I promoted at the first cabinet meeting. “President Naor is one of the most senior state and judicial figures in the State of Israel, and I am sure that the committee headed by her will lead to conclusions that will save lives in the future.”
As you may recall, 45 people were killed and more than 100 were injured following an extreme urge in the celebration of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai that was celebrated on the mountain. The commissioner, Ranz Kobi Shabtai, and the commander of the northern play, Superintendent Shimon Lavi, were the first to seek to establish such a committee.
