Rabbis: Participation in Expulsion is Against the Torah

The council of Judea and Samaria rabbis announced on Thursday that participation in the expulsion of Jews is forbidden by Torah law.  The announcement was made after the rabbis received many questions from Jewish soldiers relating to participation in the expulsion of Jews from various communities. 

 

The rabbis explained that any form of participation was forbidden, whether direct or indirect.  “It is forbidden to lend a hand to this task in any way,” the council said.
