Skverer Rebbe of New Square Set to Visit Israel

Wednesday, December 30th, 2015

The Skverer Rebbe of New Square, Rabbi Duvid Twersky, shlita is leaving his headquarters near Monsey, New York next Sunday for a visit to the Holy Land.

Thousands of the Rebbe’s chassidim are accompanying him on this visit, according to a source in New Square. “Nearly all of the men in the village are going,” said the source. “So are men from the communities in Monsey, Brooklyn and other places.”

The Chassidic dynasty of Skver is a branch of the Chernobyl dynasty, originating from the city of Skvyra, in present-day Ukraine in the mid-19th century. There are numerous Skver communities in cities around the world, including London, Paris, Antwerp and others. In addition, there are two other subgroups of the dynasty in Brooklyn led by relatives of the Rebbe as well.

One thousand special guests will greet the Rebbe in Israel and will go together with him to pray at the Western Wall and then to visit the grave sites of various Torah Sages in Israel. There will also be a special prayer event at the Tomb of the Biblical Matriarch Rachel.

During his visit to the Holy Land the Rebbe is scheduled to attend prayers at the Ariza’l Synagogue in Tzefat (Safed).

Rabbi Avigdor Ostreicher will host the Rebbe in Jerusalem on Rehov Petach Tikvah.

A huge tent will be installed to house the thousands of followers and guests who are expected to attend the “tishim” (gatherings) that will be held.

Life at Rachel’s Tomb

Sunday, October 25th, 2015

Yes, it’s true, the Arabs are repeatedly attacking Rachel’s Tomb to destroy it like they do Joseph’s tomb and keep the Jews away, but that’s not stopping Jews from visiting Mother Rachel at Fortress Rachel in Bethlehem.

The 11th of MarCheshvan (yesterday) was the yahrzeit of Rachel’s passing and masses of Jews are visiting.

Rachel was the wife of Yaakov, and mother of two of the tribes of Israel: Joseph (Ephraim & Menashe) and Benjamin.

Palestinian Authority Terrorists Wound 4-Year-Old Girl with Firebomb

Saturday, October 24th, 2015

Palestinian Authority terrorists celebrated another Day of Rage Friday by throwing a firebomb at Jewish family in a vehicle north of Jerusalem and wounding five people, including a four-year-old girl.

The family was driving on Highway 60 near Beit El in Samaria before Shabbat when the Molotov cocktail was hurled at their car.

The parents and two children suffered light burns.

The little girl, her parents and siblings were rushed to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital.

The Palestinian Authority calls terrorist attacks “acts of resistance” which on Friday included riots, rock-throwing and other firebomb attacks throughout Judea and Samaria. One of their targets was Rachel’s Tomb, which UNESCO declared this week is a Muslim site even though it existed long before the founding of Islam.

UNESCO Decides Rachel’s Tomb and Patriarchs’ Cave Are – Muslim Sites!

Wednesday, October 21st, 2015

UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization decided on Wednesday that Rachel’s Tomb (Kever Rachel) and the Patriarchs Cave (MaHarat HaMachpelah) are Muslim sites.

Yes, that is what UNESCO says, contradicting the Bible that states that the forefather Avraham bought the Cave in Hebron and denying history that shows the tomb was built before Islam existed.

UNESCO refrained from listing the Western Wall as a Muslim site, but still managed to get in its anti-Israel licks by accusing Israel, and not Arab terrorists, of “aggression and illegal measures taken against the freedom of worship,” referring to the rights of Muslims and not to Jews.

It also repeated what the Israeli government has documented as a lie by alleging “Israel’s attempts to break the status quo since 1967.”

The vote on the UNESCO Executive Committee was 26-6.

There were 25 countries that were too cowardly to vote one way or the other.

Abbas Wants UNESCO to Declare Western Wall Part of Al Aqsa

Friday, October 16th, 2015

The Palestinian Authority is laying the groundwork for UNESCO to declare that the Western Wall is part of the Al Aqsa compound on the Temple Mount, according to a report by the Hebrew daily Yediot Acharonot.

Ramallah is a member of UNESCO but not of its executive committee, and the Palestinian Authority has circulated a draft resolution to be presented to UNESCO by six Arab states on the committee – Algeria, Egypt, Kuwait, Morocco, Tunisia and the UAE.

A copy of the draft resolution obtained by the newspaper includes these clauses:

1. The Western Wall is part of “Plaza Buraq,” the Arabic name for the Western Wall.

2. The international community should condemn Israel for allowing citizens to bear arms during the recent violence;

3. The IDF and Israel should be condemned for suppression in the “capital of occupied Palestine.”

4. Israel should be condemned for excavations at the Temple Mount.

5. Israel should be condemned for “prohibiting freedom of worship at the Al Aqsa mosque and breaking the status quo.”

6. Israel should be condemned for allowing “Jewish extremists to attack Al-Aqsa,”

7. Israel should be condemned for planning to build a cable car to the Western Wall.

8. The Patriarchs’ Cave and Rachel’s Tomb should be declared as part of “Palestine.”

9. Israeli “settlers and extremists” should be condemned for violence.

That is a lot of condemnation, as well as lies.

Israel’s Ambassador to UNESCO, Simcha HaCohen, said that the draft resolution “pours fuel on the fire of incitement to terror.”

Te Palestinian Authority began a campaign more than five years to claim that Jews have no connection with the Western Wall. Laughable at first, the propaganda has escalated and spread.

Last year, PA Minister of Religious Affairs Mahmoud al-Habash told Israleli television:

Every piece of land Israel occupied in 1967 belongs to the Palestinian state. The Buraq Wall, too, will be under Palestinian sovereignty.

Clashes between Hundreds of Arab Demonstrators and IDF Soldiers in Judea and Samaria

Tuesday, September 29th, 2015

(JNi.media) A few locations in Judea and Samaria saw clashes between hundreds of Arab protesters and IDF soldiers throughout the morning and afternoon Tuesday, Israel Radio reported. The stormiest demonstration was in Ramallah, where protesters threw petrol bombs, laid down burning tires and threw stones. Arab sources reported that two demonstrators were slightly injured by rubber bullets. More riots took place in Hebron, Tulkarm and near Rachel’s Tomb in Bethlehem.

Ma’an reported that seven Arabs were injured by rubber bullets on Tuesday as Israeli forces pushed back a rally outside Ramallah in support of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and of Arab security prisoners.

Demonstrators marched from the center of Ramallah to the Jewish town of Beit El. Israeli forces fired tear gas, water canons, and rubber bullets, injuring seven people. There were unconfirmed reports of the IDF using live fire. According to Ma’an, dozens suffered tear gas inhalation.

PLO Executive Committee member Wasil Abu Yousef urged the international community to stop Israeli “restrictions and violations at Al-Aqsa,” which is code for a proposal to permit Jews to pray along the perimeter of the Temple Mount compound, in an arrangement similar to the regulations at the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron. A general strike across the PA saw stores closing for two hours in solidarity with the “threatened” mosque.

Amin Shouman, head of a Palestinian prisoners’ committee, said popular mobilization will continue in support of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and Arab security prisoners jailed in Israel.

An Israeli army spokeswoman confirmed that around 300 Arabs marched near Beit El, with Israeli forces using riot dispersal means before firing rubber bullets at the “main instigators.” She also confirmed that seven Arabs were hit.
