Chabad vs. Sharon

First Publish: 6/17/2003, 11:55 AM


The Lubavitch movement is now officially a political opponent of the Sharon government. Many Chabad rabbis have signed a declaration stating that the adoption of the Road Map means that the Sharon government no longer has "the political right to exist." The declaration was read aloud at Chabad gatherings last night all over the world. Yesha representatives led by Elyakim Ha'etzni and Moshe Leshem took part last night in one of these in Bat Yam, near Tel Aviv. All speakers there called on the NRP and National Union to quit the government.
