      Yad L'Achim Head in Critical Condition

      Rabbi Shalom Dov Lifshitz, chairman of the Yad L'Achim anti-missionary group, was admitted to Tel Hashomer Hospital near Tel Aviv, Thursday evening, in critical condition after suffering a number of illnesses, including pneumonia, in recent months. People are asked to pray for Harav Sholom Dover ben Zlata Masha.

      In addition to countering missionaries, Yad L'Achim has been active in the fight against the phenomenon of Jewish women who marry Arab men and get trapped in their villages, as well as the fight against assimilation.
