Outrage: Zealots Shred Chabad Pamphlets
By Yechiel Cohen • Chabad.info
A group of Neturei Kata zealots also known as 'Sikrikim' (Sicarii) went around to the Shuls in the Mea Sherim neighborhood in Yerushalayim collecting the Chabad pamphlets distributed by the local Shliach and, after sending them through a shredder, dispersed them throughout the city streets.
The zealots are apparently unhappy with the presence of the Chabad Shliach, Rabbi Yosef Lipa Alperowitz, in their neighborhood.
Among the pamphlet shredded were the widely distributed Sichas Hashovua, the Dvar Malchus and printouts of the daily Rambam study.
Innocent passers-by were seen collecting the shredded pamphlets off the floor and placing them in Gniza.
