JewishIsrael Gives Presentation at "Cancelled" Counter-Missionary Event

After the Eshel Hashomron Hotel in Ariel unexpectedly cancelled a counter-missionary conference scheduled to take place on September 10th 2014, the organizers of the event did their best to recoup and held the conference in Kiryat Netafim.

Despite the widely publicized cancellation and the controversy that ensued, a diverse and thoughtful audience of rabbis, professors, residents and students attended at the alternative venue.

Shulamit Leibler, director of public relations for JewishIsrael, delivered a presentation which included an overview of the missionary problem in Israel followed by a sampling of the challenges facing Yehuda and Shomron.

Other speakers included Rabbi Yoel Shwartz, co-founder of the Nahal Haredi Brigade of the IDF and recipient of the Moskowitz Prize for Zionism, Rabbi Elhanan Bin Nun, Chief Rabbi of Shiloh and the former head of the Beit Orot Hesder Yeshiva in Jerusalem, Rabbi Yehuda Richter, a lecturer on Torah in Elon Moreh and Tapuach, and former Jerusalem City Councilwoman Mina Fenton.

Based on the positive feedback and interest, a number of similar events will likely be scheduled in the near future.

JewishIsrael will be posting its presentation at the conference on YouTube in the coming days.

UPDATE: The presentation can now be viewed on YOUTUBE (in Hebrew)
