The children's uncle issues a personal plea:
Two Jewish children, aged four and two, my sister's sons, are now in Hungary, caught up in a legal storm that will decide whether they are raised by their Jewish mother, and receive a Jewish education, ...
That missionaries have no limits to how low they'll stoop is nothing new to Yad L'Achim, which has been battling them for decades. But their latest, despicable ploy is stunning in its audacity, deceit and sacrilege
Yad L'Achim released a film clip Thursday as part of its efforts to prevent assimilation in Israel. The film, distributed in the social media, opens with a shot of a Shabbos table, with a haunting Shalom Aleichem being sung in the background – in ...
It was an unforgettable sight: Thousands of Jews walked out of the Caesarea Amphitheater this past Shabbos when they realized they had been hoodwinked into attending a missionary event, as Yad L'Achim had warned.
A month after the Israel Police decided not to press charges against a missionary who distributed material to a Jewish minor in the Modiin area, on the grounds that there was no "criminal guilt," attorney Moshe Morgenstern, a member of Yad L'Achim's legal team, fired off an urgent letter to state prosecutors asking them to investigate why police closed the case for no good reason.
Yad L'Achim last month completed its training course for 20 foreign students who will serve as Israel's ambassadors to the Jewish world on the subject of assimilation.
The course, the first of its kind, was offered by a new department set up by Yad L'Achim a few years ago to deal with mixed marriage. It operates alongside the organization's counter-assimilation department, which works with Jewish girls living in Arab villages.
Every Bris Milah is emotional, but this one didn't leave a dry eye in the house. The child, who was named Eli-Or, is the son of G., a Jewish woman who until recently was living with an abusive Arab husband in the village of Kara. After 10 years of living as a Muslim, she succeeded, with Yad L'Achim's help, in escaping the village with her daughters.
A., a 36-year-old Jewish woman, spent 18 years in an Arab village in southern Israel together with her Arab husband. They'd met at a food factory where they both worked. After moving to his village they had six children.
Around six years ago, a childhood friend of A. reached out to her out of the blue, after more than a decade of no contact. A. revealed that she wasn't happy and wanted to leave her husband and the village. A few days later, the phone line in A.'s house went dead. It turns out that her husband had learned about the phone call and disconnected the line. He also punished her with violence.
Missionaries recently distributed thousands of flyers in mailboxes throughout Petach Tikvah, in the center of Israel. Outraged residents called Yad L'Achim which quickly dispatched activists to the area to expose the missionaries and distribute their own material to counter them.
Yad L'Achim's counter-assimilation department, which has traditionally focused its efforts on Jewish women involved with non-Jewish men, has recently begun working with Jewish men contemplating marrying out.
A survey conducted by the Smith Institute on behalf of Yad L'Achim shows that more than 90 percent of the Jewish public in Israel staunchly opposes intermarriage between their son or daughter and a Muslim.
The survey, released last week, also shows that among the secular public in Israel some 20 percent are personally familiar with couples who have intermarried, compared to 12 percent in the religious-chareidi sector.
Jerusalem residents were outraged to discover that flyers being distributed on the streets of the capital by missionaries bore the official seal of the City of Jerusalem. They notified Yad L'Achim, which immediately turned to the municipality with a demand that legal action be taken to get the practice halted.
An attorney for Yad L'Achim, Moshe Morgenstern, sent an urgent letter to the justice minister and attorney general this week demanding an investigation into illegal missionary activity at a recent conference held for security officers of the Eshkol regional council.
School principals in the Jerusalem District were shocked to learn that an official Education Ministry ceremony held this Tuesday to distribute citations of merit was held at a missionary center in the heart of the capital.
The missionaries are taking cynical advantage of the terror wave in Israel to prey on innocent Jews.
Yad L'Achim has received dozens of calls from residents reporting missionaries circulating in city centers and using the security situation to draw passersby into discussions about their fears. These quickly led to conversations on matters of faith and the distribution of missionary material, with assurances following in its ways will lead to quiet on the country's streets.
