Antimissionaries use Facebook to intimidate Messianic Jews in south Bat Yam

Anti-Missionary Activities

Yediot Bat Yam, May 31, 2013 (via Caspari Center)

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.


Yaakov Teitel finally receives prison sentence

teitel arrested

Breaking news:  suspected murderer and attempted murderer Jack Teitel received 2 life sentences and 30 years extra for murder of two Arabs and attempted murder of Messianic Jewish teen Ami Ortiz.

Here’s an earlier article we wrote about Yaakov “Jack” Teitel and his links to Yad L’Achim:-

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.

Netanya office of Yad L’Achim proudly show their affection for the Chabad Rebbe!!

yl netanya outsideGuest post from a sharp eyed reader:-

Back in the times of the bible, people had to put blood over the door posts.

Today, the staff that work in the Netanya Yad L’Achim offices who aim to be anti missionaries but really want Jews to believe in a the New York Rabbi Menachem Schneerson as the Jewish Messiah, put a little picture of their favorite dude above their door posts!

How cute eh?

A while back we found Yad L’Achim’s Netanya office was responsible for threatening to remove kosher licenses to catering establishments who has other religious groups using their premises.

Soon the general Israeli media and public will see this dysfunctional group as a completely opposite representation of decent law and torah abiding Jews.

Kiryat Gat Messianic congregation building in arson attack

This week a messianic congregation in Kiryat Gat was burned down deliberately:

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.

Activist group corrects our spelling but doesn’t know who works for them!

We admit our spelling could be better sometimes!! of course Jesus should be Yeshua, not without the A as sometimes done in a derogatory manner.  Here writing in a hurry and copying some paragraphs around resulted in some errors we fixed afterwards.

Drink less or more coffee for New Year, we can’t decide!!

who is david sharon

yl 770But we are still waiting for Yad L’achim to give us an explanation about how they missionize the Jews themselves to 770 Rebbe dude from New York, who we think was a nice gent and a good teacher, but never visited Israel.  Does any of the Chabadnik 770niks ever fancy having a theological debate with Schneerson vs Yeshua?   This is a better way to discuss religious disagreements, not playing pretend Mossad.

Heck, members of their own Facebook group got in a discussion on the Rebbe, until it was quietly removed shortly.

Maybe that why three years ago, the organization denied they had a murderer as part of their volunteer team??  Here you can read articles we wrote previously on Jack ‘Yaakov’ Teitel.

Book from ex-CIA agent studies persecution on believers in Jesus


Former CIA staffer Herbert Schlossberg has a book from back in 1991 called Fragrance of Oppression which studies Persecution of Christians around the world.

On page you can read his study of Yad L’achim’s attacks on Messianic Jews in the Galilee, you can read online, pages 55 and 56;

fragrance of oppression

Israel is the only democratic country in the middle east therefore believers in Jesus get a better deal than neighboring nations, where today Christians are often killed or put in prison in Syria, Egypt, Yemen, Iran, and Nigeria.

Troubles in Israel are tiny by comparison, but as lovers of this country we feel called to pray and share for believers here, fulfillment in Israel’s people being brought back, as well salvation of Jewish and Arab people, and encourage fellow believers to join in prayer also.

Mark 13 : 5 Jesus said to them: “Watch out that no one deceives you. 6 Many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am he,’ and will deceive many. 7 When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. 8 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places, and famines. These are the beginning of birth pains.
9 “You must be on your guard. You will be handed over to the local councils and flogged in the synagogues. On account of me you will stand before governors and kings as witnesses to them. 10 And the gospel must first be preached to all nations. 11 Whenever you are arrested and brought to trial, do not worry beforehand about what to say. Just say whatever is given you at the time, for it is not you speaking, but the Holy Spirit.
12 “Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child. Children will rebel against their parents and have them put to death. 13 Everyone will hate you because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.

Difficult times ahead but we have the victory through Yeshua!  All the best for 2013 everyone, and good Shabbos.

Missionaries in Jerusalem high street shock!

yl prayer shawl

Tallis cloths seen for sale in the popular Ben Yehuda Street in the middle of Jerusalem, meant anti-missionary society Yad L’achim got very upset this week.

For anyone who isn’t around Jerusalem, let’s walk our mouse or trackpad up Ben Yehuda shall we?

Actually we can’t get right into the street, as Google couldn’t drive up there, but just behind this corner, Chabad missionaries are proudly showing their yellow posters of their Rebbe Messiah, two or three days a week.

P1060272 P1060271

rebbe dudeJust 1Km away you can see these posters in the nearby shuk.  In truth for anyone who lives in Jerusalem will know full well, there are missionaries in the shuk most days of the week.   They are Chabad ultra Orthodox Jews who encourage men to wrap tefilin and put on phylacteries, however these people have giant pictures of the Rebbe, Menachim Schneerson as a representation of the Jewish Messiah, so they are missionizing the Jews to become followers of the Rebbe.  Plenty of missionary posters are around town to encourage Jews to become followers of the Rebbe too.

Yad L’achim won’t comment on this as numerous of them are followers of the Rebbe themselves and encourage this!!

Spotting devoted followers of the Rebbe is easy to spot with the numbers ‘770’ on these guys internet username, email addresses and phone numbers, or yellow posters with משיח (Messiah) below a white bearded Rabbi with his right hand up.   Rebbe Schneerson only lived at his famous house in New York between 1988 and his death in 1994, but devotees treat it as kind of Jewish version of Elvis’s Gracelands house.

We hope the Israeli and Jewish public we recognize Yad L’achim hypocritical nonsense as Israel is a democratic country and Jewish people should be able to choose their definition of the Messiah.   For believers in Yeshua, he is the greatest Jew whoever lived!
