“It’s a good city, a good business,” said Gerd, whose factory opened in 1999.
“We have good neighbors.
We’re not really in the big city, but it’s a nice, comfortable place.
The kids are playing in the yard and playing basketball.”
Gerd said he has received phone calls from people in the city and surrounding area about their displeasure with the restaurant’s recent closure.
“I think people will come here because they’re fed up with the city,” he said.
“But I don’t think it’s the city’s fault, and the people here have the right to come here.
They’re fed-up with it, and I don´t want to have to go anywhere else.”
For now, the restaurant is open and Gerd says he plans to stay open until the end of the month.
“We’re gonna keep opening,” he told The Jerusalem Mail on Tuesday.
“I can´t take the blame.”
