The Eida HaCharedis along with the anti-Zionist Natruna organization are fundraising for a campaign to appear in Arabic language newspapers in areas of eastern Jerusalem in which they will explain the chareidi tzibur does not visit Har Habayis as opposed “to the Zionists”. The Yiddish flyer informing the tzibur seeks monetary support, explaining the Eida Chareidis in Yerushalayim has asked for the campaign to raise the necessary funds to get the message out to the Arab-speaking community.
Pashkavilim in Yerushalayim from the Eida emphasize the prohibition of visiting Har Habayis, mentioning “persons in chareidi garb” counted among those who visit the holy site.
The Yiddish flyer speaks of the importance of getting the message out to the Arabs, that chareidim are not counted among those who visit Har Habayis. It states in the past HaGaon Rav Chaim Zonnenfeld ZT”L published a call in Arabic speaking of the prohibition of visiting Har Habayis, now calling on chassidim to repeat this campaign today.
The flyer calls on those wishing to merit being a part of this to give $100 and those with the means to donate $500.
