Volunteers Needed To Protect Jewish Girls on Purim

Patty Kupfer, Director of Learn and Live, a group focused on saving Jewish girls from abusive relationships, notes one particularly drunk 17-year-old girl last Purim was nearly "helped" by two Arab men into their car.

The group notes that Muslim legal authority Sheik Abu Humam Al-Athari announced in 2011 that Islamic law encourages Arab men to capture "infidel" (Jewish and Christian) women. Since the ruling, Learn and Live reports the number of Jewish girls who have "gone missing" more than doubled.
