'Shabbat Beshabbato' Not Published 1st Time in 29 Years

For the first time in 29 years, the booklet "Shabbat Beshabbato" will not be distributed in synagogues, this week. Rabbi Yisrael Rosen, the booklet's managing editor, told Arutz Sheva, Thursday, that it was decided not to publish the booklet after a piece by Member of Knesset Danny Danon was not labelled as a publicity piece.

Rabbi Rosen lamented the fact that similar booklets have become newspapers and expressed hope that this week's absence of "Shabbat Beshabbato" would result in more people listening to prayers. He said the booklet would return next week and he hoped that the lesson's would be learned.
