Ben-Dahan Condemns Burning of Mezuzot in New York

Deputy Religious Affairs Minister Eli Ben-Dahan responded, Tuesday morning, to the Monday-evening burning of mezuzot in Brooklyn by saying, "The burning of mezuzot is a terrible act of damaging holy things of Israel and must not happen."

Rabbi Ben-Dahan added, "I was glad to hear the New York Attorney General's office condemned the incident. It's sad when desecration of the holy things of Israel occurs in Israel - a Jewish state, the heads of state do not find it necessary to condemn the acts, as is proper."
