Residents of south Bat Yam continue to be outraged by the presence of a Messianic Jewish prayer house operating out of the ground floor of a private apartment building. After receiving many complaints, Yad L’Achim decided to investigate and sent Rabbi Meir Tal to check out the apartment. While he was looking around, he found New Testaments on some of the bookshelves inside. The rabbi confronted those who were present, and a verbal confrontation ensued. He then met with Yad L’Achim, and together they launched a campaign on Facebook, which quickly gathered momentum and caused some people to return to the prayer house in an act of protest. They entered the premises and removed what New Testaments they could find, which they later burned on the beach. Eliezer Gal, who belongs to the Messianic prayer house, told the paper, “No one from our group has any problems with other people, whoever they may be. We are a warm and supportive congregation who believe in justice, and we have no desire to confront those who do not share our worldview. This world is open to everyone. We will continue with our activities throughout the city.”
Sadly folks find the very presence of Messianic Jews worshiping in their own building quietly offensive, and Yad L’Achim sending Chassedic self-style religious bullies in to set up a Facebook group to hurt them. Pray for safety and protection of the believers and the community.
In the mean time Yad L’Achim carry on with harassment and threats at Messianic Jews and Christians, and pretend they are a legitimate religious group providing holy services to Jews in Israel, whilst the the Yad L’Achim go and worship their fake American Moshiach Rebbe, like this mock up of the 770 house, in Kfar Chabad next to Tel Aviv airport.
I’d like to know who does the printing and distribution of this posters as this should be a criminal offense. Yad L’Achim have printed other hate posters before, some without their name done anonymously.
Unlike Palestinian murderers there are no Jewish people celebrating the wicked actions of this man or any streets named after him which is common practice with Islamic terrorism. We rejoice for justice in Israel this week. The Ortiz family continue to pray for Teitel’s salvation.
We pray that this community will be able to still meet, and they get their equipment replaced in Kiryat Gat. Make sure you get a good security camera system guys.
This act of criminal damage maliciously aimed at the Messianic Jewish community and strangely didn’t seem to get picked up by the mainstream Israeli media 😦 Sadly this is not the first time that arson has happened on buildings and cars owned by Messianic Jews.
Good news for the results of a very long pending trial of this dangerous criminal, Teitel will face bars for attempted murder of messianic teen Ami Ortiz, as well murder of Arabs and sending a bomb to a Israeli professor.
Jack Teitel also known as Yaakov Tytell is an American born religious Jew and confessed to these crimes, but was found not to be mentally ill, he was also a member of Yad L’Achim for 5 years, although deny this here from a statement from the late Rav Dov Lifshitz, a few years ago was the then chairman of Yad L’Achim.
