Memorial for Counter-Missionary Rabbi


An event will be held Tuesday to remember Rabbi Shalom Dov Lifshitz, who passed away last year. During the event in Bnei Brak speakers will recall Rabbi Lifshitz and speak about his many decades of activism.

Rabbi Lifshitz founded the Yad L’Achim organization, which counters missionary activity and assimilation. The group is perhaps best known for its daring rescues of Jewish women trapped in abusive relationships with Arab men in Palestinian Authority-controlled areas.
