Jerusalem: Mea Shearim
Sep 13, 2013

Меа Шеари́м — один из старейших районов нового города в Иерусалиме. Основан в 1880. В широком понимании под Меа Шеарим подразумевают все соседние районы с религиозным населением, включающие Макор Барух, Геулу, Бейт Исраэль, Бухарский квартал, Батей Варша, Батей Унгарин. В религиозном мире принято расширенный Меа Шеарим называть по имени другого крупного района в блоке: Геула. В более узком смысле под именем Меа Шеарим подразумевается небольшой район по обеим сторонам улицы с одноимённым названием.

Название района переводится как «сто крат» и представляет собой выражение из Библии (Быт. 26:12): «И сеял Исаак в земле той и получил в тот год ячменя во сто крат: так благословил его Господь.»

В начале ХХ века Меа Шеарим был смешанным религиозно-светским районом, однако в 60-е годы религиозное население начало вести активную борьбу за закрытие улиц и всех учреждений по шаббатам. Эта активность вынудила светскую молодёжь искать себе жильё в других местах. Пожилые люди постепенно доживают свой век и их квартиры постепенно переходят к религиозным жителям района.

На сегодняшний день заселён в основном ультраортодоксальными евреями, в числе которых также Нетурей карта и сикриким. На субботы и праздники проезд через район перекрыт. При вспышках религиозного недовольства деятельностью разных официальных органов и групп в Израиле на Меа Шеарим приходится основная доля религиозных демонстраций и акций протеста.
--------------------------------------------------------------
Today, Mea Shearim remains an insulated neighbourhood in the heart of Jerusalem. With its overwhelmingly Haredi population, the streets retain the flavor of an East European shtetl. Life revolves around strict adherence to Jewish law, prayer, and the study of Jewish texts. Traditions in dress may include black frock coats and black or fur-trimmed hats for men (although there are many other clothing styles, depending on the religious sub-group to which they belong), and long-sleeved, modest clothing for women. In some groups, the women wear thick black stockings all year long, including summer. Married women wear a variety of headcoverings, from wigs to headscarves. The men have beards and some grow long sidecurls, called peyos. The residents speak Yiddish in their daily lives, and use Hebrew only for prayer and religious study, as they believe Hebrew to be a sacred language only to be used for religious purposes.

Hasidic groups with a large number of followers in Mea Shearim include: Breslov, Slonim, Toldos Aharon, Toldos Avraham Yitzchak, Mishkenos HaRoim, and Satmer. The Pinsk-Karlin dynasty also has its center here. The Edah HaChareidis, which supervises kashrut certification and runs a Jewish religious court, has its headquarters at the western end of Mea Shearim. Mea Shearim is the stronghold of both factions of the Neturei Karta movement, as well as the movement from whence they sprung, the descendants of the original Perushim community, also known as "Yerushalmis". The late Rabbi Yosef Shalom Eliashiv, the leading posek of Litvish/Yeshivish Jewry, made his home here.
