The mora d’asra of Kfar Chabad, Rabbi Meir Ashkenazi Shlita, has released a public letter addressing the security crisis, calling on residents to recite Tehillim 20, 22, 69, and 130 after shachris. In addition, after reciting the 12 pesukim in kindergartens and elementary school, the rav calls on them to recite the pasuk ‘מפי עוללים וגו” with the children.
Rav Ashkenazi then turns to residents, calling on them to stop employing Arab construction workers during the crisis. The rav calls on residents to suspend working with Arab construction workers during the crisis or at least provide an armed security guard to oversee the construction workers. He asks them to join the community’s security patrol, for those capable of doing so, emphasizing one who cannot suspend working with Arabs in the coming days must place an armed guard in the area.
