Christians, Jews and Sukkot in Israel - Audio
With over 6000 Christians from over 90 nations expected to take part in a Christian celebration of Sukkot in Israel this week, the chief rabbinate urged Jews to stay away from the event, saying some of the groups want to convert them to Christianity. Proselytizing is illegal in Israel.
"According to information that has reached the chief rabbinate, there are participants in this conference who convert Jews to Christianity and perform missionary activity throughout the year," said Rabbi Simcha Hacohen Kook, the chief rabbi of Rehovot, who took part in committee discussions of the matter. "This is against the law, so the chief rabbinate is calling upon Jews not to take part in the conference."
Israel National News (http://www.israelnationalnews.com/ ) recently aired a segment on this topic on the program "The Stuggle". Rabbi Bentzion Kravitz was a participant in the discussion. We present it here.
