protest-kevorimToday, thousands of frum Jews will gather outside the offices of RFR Realty to express outrage at the company’s refusal to stop destroying ancient kevorim in historical Jaffa, Israel.

RFR Realty is building a luxury hotel on the grounds of an ancient graveyard. Proposals have been suggested that would allow the construction to continue while preserve the ancient burial grounds. Although the Israeli partner in the construction is open to methods of preserving the graves, RFR has refused to consider any of the proposals and refuses to meet with organizations involved in preserving ancient burial grounds, sparking outrage and condemnation from Jews worldwide.

The demonstrators will have one message for RFR and its owner Aby Rosen: “Preserve the ancient graves!”

The protest is being organized by The Central Rabbinical Congress of The United States & Canada, an organization representing hundreds of thousands of religious Jews, as well as many rabbis and congregations in North America.

The demonstration will feature speakers on the topic of preserving the gravesite, as well as a speaker from Israel who will give a first-hand account of the issue. A slide show with images of the ancient bodies being desecrated will be shown at the protest.

Jews worldwide have held protests to express their outrage at the destruction of graves belonging to ancient ancestors.

The protest will take place in front of 390 Park Avenue, between 54th & 53th Streets, at 4 p.m.

  1. To #2 & to all those so called “lovers of Israel”.
    If these graves digged out by the Israeli government were been ?”? your parents or grand parents etc. would you also be so “concerned” about the rally against Israel at this time?
    Also where are your concerns when the Israeli police are beating up our brothers in Jerusalem & Jaffa, aren’t these people at least so “jewish” like Jonathan Pollard & Gilad Shalit?
