Ra’anana: Reform ‘House of Worship’ Targeted in Graffiti Attack


rePolice are investigating a graffiti attack against a Ra’anana ‘house of worship’ in which the vandal left references to quotes in both Tehillim and the Rambam, referring to Halachos that kofrim do not have a share in Olam Haba.

There are no reports of arrests in the case.

  1. Nahapochu – by Mechallel et Hashem are you referring to people who establish a presence for reform “Judaism” in Israel (or anywhere else for that matter).

    I won’t bother pretending to know which halachot should be taken into account in this case. In general graffiti is against the secular law, and it’s up for debate if this crossed the lines of derech eretz or not. But given all that the fact remains – whoever did this does have a pretty good point.

  2. There was a time when if such a thing occurred the odds were that it was a chiloni attempt to defame the religious by perpetrating the act and making it look as if the religious fanatics did it. (Sort of like the Boston Tea Party)

    Now-a-days, when so many decide what’s right or wrong on their own without consulting Talmidi Chochomim, we can no longer assume that.

    Very sad.
