Missionaries Are Targeting Baalei Teshuva In Uman

Missionary activities in Eretz Yisrael have been increasing over recent years R”L, as these individuals remain committed to their goal, to pull Jews away from avodas Hashem. With Rosh Hashanah approaching, Yad L’Achim is warning the tzibur at large that missionaries are concentrating efforts in Uman, amid the awareness that tens of thousands of Jews from Israel, the US and other countries, will be visiting the tziyun of Rav Nachman of Breslov ZT”L.

Yad L’Achim warns that Christian missionaries are working the streets of Ukraine, handing out literature and speaking with people in order to persuade Jews to leave their religion. Some of the flyers being distributed by missionaries are printed in Yiddish.

A Yad L’Achim representative spoke with BeChadrei Chareidim, and they report the missionaries are quite aware that some of the mispallalim joining the tens of thousands in Uman for Rosh Hashanah are just in the beginning of their baal teshuva process; and are easier targets as persuading them to change direction chas v’sholom may be easier than one who is firm in his Avodas Hashem.

In fact, after last Rosh Hashanah, Yad L’Achim learned missionaries began operating in Uman, but it was too late for last year. However, there is time to make the tzibur aware of the lurking danger this year, ahead of Rosh Hashanah.

Yad L’Achim is not known for taking a passive attitude, and this is the case here as well, as its shluchim will be on the look out in Uman too. The organization urges anyone who may have seen missionaries operating in Uman to phone their Uman number, +38-093-36-36-148. The number is Eretz Yisrael is 03-6154-100.
