Work Resumes at Shepherd Hotel Site

01/19/2011

JERUSALEM (JTA) -- Work on the construction of a Jewish housing project at the site of the Shepherd Hotel in eastern Jerusalem resumed following the dismissal of a halt work injunction.

An Interior Ministry appeals committee said Wednesday that work could continue on the site after rejecting a complaint filed Sunday with the Jerusalem municipal building committee by The Muslim Committee, a new nongovernmental organization that describes itself as seeking to preserve Muslim sites in Israel. Work was ordered stopped after the complaint was filed, pending Wednesday's hearing.
