Rabbi Benny Lau: Temple Mount Activist Unjustly Penalized


Rabbi Benny Lau, of Jerusalem’s Ramban Synagogue and affiliated community wrote on his Facebook page this morning that despite his reasons for never having visited Temple Mount, he cannot stand by when a man like Yehuda Glick is yelled at by members of the Arab Waqf for no good reason and then penalized by being denied access to the area.

Glick, a Temple Mount Activist and recent hunger-striker in protest of his being denied access to Temple Mount, has seemingly found a surprising supporter in Rabbi Benny Lau.
