The owner of the NewPharm pharmacy chain will finish closing all his pharmacies on Shabbat next month.

The owner, Ramit Shavit, feels that it is socially unfair to the workers to force them to work on Shabbat, simply so he can make a shekel. Shavit describes himself as not religious, but traditional.

Shavit also controls Hamashbir L'Tzarchan and closed them all on Shabbat.

Where do you go if you need medicine in an emergency on Shabbat?

Many of the pharmacies around Jerusalem (and other cities as well), have set up a rotational system with different pharmacist/pharmacy taking emergency shifts on different Shabbats and weeknights after midnight - solely for emergency medical needs.

Good for him. Good or us. Good for society.

Is there a phone number you can call to find out which pharmacies are open on any given Shabbat?

Unfortunately it only in Hebrew, but go here: http://www.health.gov.il/pages/default.asp?maincat=11&catId=38&PageId=3135 and select your city.

From there select the month we are in, and you should get the list.

Kol HaKavod to him. We are that much closer to mashiach coming because of Jews like him

How about suggesting that they also post the schedule in English?
