Booklets Against Rabbis in Bnei Brak Mailboxes


The Yad L'Achim anti-missionary group has received many complaints in recent days about a booklet carrying the provocative title "Banned - What Rabbis Don't Want You to Know," which has been placed in mailboxes in Bnei Brak, east of Tel Aviv. Yad L'Achim blames what it calls the Christian missionary cult "Messianic Jews" for the booklet, which includes inciteful material attacking Torah giants and other rabbis.

Leaflets have been circulated throughout the city, calling on people to destroy the booklets immediately. A statement from Yad L'Achim said, "The missionaries have proved, once again, that there is no limit to their arrogance and audacity since they have marked the city of Bnei Brak as a new target in their agressive missionary campaign of destruction throughout the country." The organization added, "This is an additional example of the highest need for enactment of a significant law against missionary activity in the country which is trying to bring an end, Heaven forbid, to everything good."
