Police Question Rabbi For Controversial Letter

Rabbi Chaim Greenspan of the Mitzpe Yericho Yeshiva was taken in for questioning Wednesday. Rabbi Greenspan was one of dozens of rabbis who signed a public letter three years ago in the wake of the terrorist attack that killed 8 middle school age students at the Merkaz Harav Yeshiva in Jerusalem. 

The letter stated "stop engaging the Arab enemy. Do not put enemies in our homes, do not purchased from enemies, do not employ them." 

The terrorist who killed the yeshiva students was an Arab employee of the yeshiva. Rabbi Greenspan is the latest to be investigated in the matter.
