Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu, the chief rabbi of Tzfat visited Boaz Albert, an Israeli activist currently under a restraining order. Rabbi Eliyahu stated, "we came to support you and admire the scenery and your vineyard. "We came to say You are our brother Boaz," added Rabbi Eliyahu. He decried Albert's house arrest. Albert was restricted from his home in Yitzhar, where he lives with his wife and six children and maintains a vineyard. In the past he has protested against demolitions of homes in Samaria.
