Sheva Mitzvos Campaign Targets East Jerusalem Arabs

A group of Lubavitcher Chassidim have launched a Sheva Mitzvos B’nei Noach campaign, targeting Palestinians living in East Jerusalem.

From Ynet:

Chabad activists are planning to visit East Jerusalem during the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah in order to explain to the Palestinian residents the importance of observing the Seven Laws of Noah (a set of imperatives which, according to the Talmud, were given by God as a binding set of laws for all of humanity).

The Hasidic movement has decided to try to solve the terror problem by encouraging non-Jews to observe mitzvot, and have recently launched a campaign aimed at raising awareness of these laws.

As part of the campaign, Chabad members are asking Jerusalem’s Arab minority to observe the mitzvot given to all people, including the prohibitions against eating a live animal, murder, stealing, denying God engaging in incest and adultery.

The campaign kicked off with an event held on Jerusalem’s King George Street in the presence of Deputy for Regional Cooperation Ayoob Kara, who promised to help advance the campaign.

    “The campaign’s initiator, Boaz Kali, said 100,000 billboard signs would be printed with a picture of the Lubavitcher Rebbe alongside the word “messiah” in Arabic and quotes from letters calling for world peace by observing mitzvot. Hundreds of ads have already been distributed near Arab neighborhoods and construction sites.”

    Boaz, you’re the man! Hazlocho Rabba umufluga.

    Fire eats fire.

    Moshiach now.

    A lot of jews dislike chabad. You think the palestinians are going to appreciate it? The need a symbol of peace from one of their own. They’ll pay attention to that.
    And I heard a Palestinian official stated that it’s ok if they’re set up in genereal areas, but should not be put up in palestinian neighborhoods because attacks on hasidim/jews in general might follow. Kinda like proselytizing in their eyes.
    I’m not defending their actions, but I am saying it’s a waste of money.

      Yes a terrible idea. Just terrible. The arabs may start to dislike yidden… who knows what they might do when that happens…

      Boaz says it best: “”This is a religious war, so it requires a religious response, and the Seven Laws of Noah are the basis,” says Kali”

      All the physical eitzios have failed spectacularly. And the the way forward for you modern chochomim is rinse repeat.

      It’s time to bring arabs true religion.

    The Rebbe spoke in the Lamed years about learning Sha’ar Hayichud V’hoemuna with the Arabs.

    These are not Lubavitcher Chassidim they’re Mishechistim. Can we please stop mixing the two

      And I am a non-Meshichist and a Lubavitcher chasid, and agree with “Pedant” and disagree strongly with “A Chabad enthusiast.” חסידים זיינען איין משפחה regardless of whatever specifics we do or don’t agree on.

    In the past they were successful, they did a major campaign which included going to every arab village, and at the same time the bus bombings stopped. The Rambam writes any non Jew who keeps the 7 commandments because G-d said so, has a place in the world to come.
