We came across this article from Wikileaks about Yad Lachim visiting the Feast of Tabernacles in Jerusalem each October.
A lone Orthodox Jew walks into the largest Christian event of the year and admits to looking for what Yad Lachim describe as Missionary activity.
Its well known Yad Lachim frontman Benjamin Klugger again, the pic is not good enough resolution to see Mr Klugger’s badge. Of course, he might be using another identity perhaps like he did before HERE.
Well known Messianic Jewish blog Rosh Pina Project also covered this and hes not representing any stand thats there, but also seen by other folks. http://roshpinaproject.com/2011/10/19/undercover-anti-missionary-at-christian-event-in-jerusalem/
Now, we like Malcom Hedding (who has now retired) and the works of the Christian Embassy and we have been to a few of the Feast of Tabernacle main worship events. We think the ICEJ folks think he is just a regular Haredim gent, or were just too embarassed to not say hello or have them asked to leave.
The brown and orange brochure looks familiar, it might well be the Hebrew Handel’s Messiah event which is organized by King of King’s Congregation in Jerusalem. We are wondering about the flag.
The Embassy has criticised Yad Lachim and its practices though, like this article:-
We hope that they keep an eye out for any antimissionaries who go in undercover or with chutzpah to just stroll in!!
We also like to point out this is a great event to go to so don’t want to put people off from going to the Feast of Tabernacles or Jerusalem in general, and we support the great work of the International Christian Embassy does to bless Israel and the Jewish people. We will have a quiet word with their security people.
Update: a closer look at Rabbi Klugger’s badge shows the word ‘VENDOR‘ so he is part of a trader attending at the stands here…. It not possible to make out the name on their though…..
