Mossa'ei Shabbath Qodesh Parshath Shelah 5769
So, my first Shabbath back in Jerusalem, and I get to see Christians on the Midrahov (Ben-Yehudah/Mordechai Ben-Hillel) musically welcoming me into the new week. Just great!
I did my best to let Hebrew speakers know who they are, and what they are doing there. Some haredi kids moved along, yet another religious man was not in the least bit interested in hearing about misswoth (commandments) related to avodah zarah (foreign worship). At least I got this lovely reaction from the group's leader, who, as you can see, was none to happy to hear the word "police," not that they would do anything, let alone come.
Unfortunately, I only had the B'nei Braq number for Yad leAchim (anti-missionary) and not the Jerusalem one with me. They are pretty on top of these things, but still, it never hurts to report in. The worst thing that will happen is that they will tell you thank you, and that they already know about it.
I encourage you to keep these phone numbers handy, and do the same:
|Jerusalem (02) 537-1003|
Haifa (04) 867-4122
New York (866) 923-5224
|B'nei Braq (03) 579-8383|
Qeriyath Shemonah (04) 695-1819
Montreal (514) 276-1185
