An Israeli court ruled that members of a kibbutz on the outskirts of Jerusalem can work on the Sabbath. The court said the day of rest for a collective organization such as a kibbutz could not be determined by outside religious bodies. The decision came in the wake of charges filed last March against six members of Kibbutz Tzora for working in kibbutz stores on the Sabbath.
