Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem receives assurance of no proselytizing at ICEJ event

Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem Rabbi Aryeh Stern has said that he received guarantees from the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem that there would be no missionary activity at the organization’s Feast of Tabernacles celebration which start’s next week.

Stern’s office has been in touch with ICEJ in order to seek this clarification, after several anti-missionary groups objected to the organization’s forthcoming event, and Stern wrote to one of these groups explaining his position on the issue.

“We have spoke with those who are responsible for the conference and agreed with them that the event which happened last year will not be repeated, that even though was not a clear missionary activity nevertheless caused great resentment from all Jews,” Stern wrote to the Yad L’achim organization.
