Highway Sinkhole on Shabbat

18 Sept 2022: Sinkhole opened up in one lane of the Ayalon Highway on Shabbat, the 17th of September.  While religious Jews generally do not drive on Shabbat, secular Jews, Muslims, and Christians who do not observe Shabbat use cars as they wish. This sinkhole in a Tel Aviv highway suddenly appeared during Shabbat; thankfully, no cars fell in.  Generally, each town and city passes zoning laws which determine how many shops (if any) or restaurants are permitted to open on Shabbat; there is some variety place to place because of the different religious views which people hold.
