Israel continues to do what ever it can to distance our religious community from our land and our ancestors. If this was happening in any other country, every Jewish organization in the world would be screaming from the rooftops, but the silence is deafening.
(IsraelNN.com) The government Monday afternoon leveled a structure used as a synagogue by Breslov Hasidic Jews and other students of Torah. They erected the structure on Har Garizim because of its proximity to the birthplace of Joseph.
Government officials maintained that the building was built without a permit and was not a synagogue. Several students have said they will rebuild the structure.
