Rabbi Melamed: Don’t Touch Givat Assaf


The Head Rabbi of the Bet El Yeshiva (Torah academy), Rabbi Zalman Melamed, turned this morning (Wednesday) to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in a heartfelt letter, urging the PM and his ministers to stand by their promise and not demolish homes in the Binyamin region community of Givat Assaf.

Rabbi Melamed implored the PM to leave the community alone, stating that Givat Assaf provides a sense of confidence to all those who travel to any of the communities along Route 60.
