Lubavitcher Rebbe Street Sign Vandalized
A shocking and shameful incident has shaken up the Chabad community in Be’er Sheva, Israel: A sign bearing the name of a street named after the Lubavitcher Rebbe, OBM, was vandalized by unknown perpetrators.
The vandals painted over a portion of the sign that bears the dates of the Rebbe’s birth and passing – 11 Nissan 1902-3 Tammuz 1994 – leading many to conclude that this shameful act was perpetrated by radical ‘Mashichistim,’ commonly known as ‘Tzfatim,’ who take offense at any mention of the Rebbe’s passing.
This is the second time such an incident occurred. Almost exactly one year ago, the sign was vandalized in a similar fashion, but had since been repaired by the municipality.
