Lev L’Achim Warns Against Vacation Spots Operated by Missionaries


cover-of-missionary-booklet-smallLev L’Achim heads have voiced their objections to missionary nternet sites and their shameful stance toward these advertisers, quipping that birds of a feather flock together. Any cooperation with these websites has been strictly prohibited by gedolei Yisroel.

Rav Zeev Shteiglitz of Lev L’Achim told a reporter from the Hebrew daily Yated Ne’eman, “Missionaries try every possible means of penetrating the [chareidi] camp. The worst of them are from the `Messianic Jews,’ who try to ensnare the chareidi public as well, through all sorts of kashrus arrangements and mehadrin slogans, when in fact all they want is to take the money and souls of yirei Hashem.”

Shteiglitz also said, “Following a resolute battle over the course of several years on the issue of accommodations at Yad Hashmonah, located in Matei Yehuda and which is owned and operated by missionaries, we managed to pass in the Chief Rabbinate Council a sweeping decision against granting kashrus supervision to missionary establishments.

“Still, the missionaries did not give up and now they are making efforts via `chareidi’ Internet sites – a classic case of motzo min es mino. These sites are now trying, in the name of profit, to lure people unknowingly into this dangerous trap, providing further proof of the tremendous spiritual dangers lying in so-called chareidi websites.”
