Housing Minister Pledges to Help Mitzpe Yericho Yeshiva


Housing Minister Uri Ariel toured the Netivot Yoseph yeshiva in the Mitzpe Yericho, Friday, to get a close look at vandalism, including desecration of Torah scrolls, perpetrated this week by Palestinian Authority Arabs who infiltrated the Binyamin-region Jewish community. He promised Rabbi Shabtai Sabbato, the head of the yeshiva, that the ministry would do everything necessary to repair damage to the yeshiva.

Ariel also said, "Our revenge is expansion of the yeshiva," said Ariel, "I expect President Shim'on Peres to come here and condemn these serious acts, as he would have if it was a Muslim mosque that was  torched."
