A group of Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s neighbors in Ra’anana sent a letter on Sunday to Shin Bet Chief Nadav Argaman, Internal Security Minister Omer Bar-Lev, the director-general of the Prime Minister’s office, and others, demanding that Bennett move to the Prime Minister’s Residence in Jerusalem, Channel 12 News reported.
When Bennett became prime minister, the family decided to remain in Ra’anana so their four school-age children wouldn’t have to switch schools, and use the Prime Minister’s Residence in Jerusalem only for official events. The decision may be beneficial for the Bennett children but Bennett’s neighbors are far from pleased as the Bennett home has turned into a center of protests and security forces.
“The happenings around the house of the new prime minister have created an impossible situation for my clients,” the group’s lawyer wrote. “Overnight, their place of residence has turned into a fortress, a war zone, a military base, and a center of protests.”
The residents are demanding three things – that the prime minister move his primary place of residence to Rechov Balfour in Jerusalem; that the protests be stopped or at least minimized; and that the security arrangements for Bennett be less disruptive to the residents.

Certainly you can “share the load"
The letter is the last step prior to an appeal to the Supreme Court.
