About 4,000 religious zealots demonstrated over the weekend against a new municipal swimming pool in the Ramot neighborhood because it will be open on the Sabbath and will permit mixed bathing — men and women. Several motorists were slightly wounded Saturday when their cars were stoned by ultra-Orthodox Jews in the adjacent neighborhood of Ramot Eshkol. Two city employes were attacked by a barrage of stones when they arrived by car Saturday to repair a broken water pipe in Makor Baruch, a neighborhood populated by religious and secular Jews.
