B'nai Brith Canada Ascends the Temple Mount
ON THE 19TH OF SIVAN, (May 28), Rabbi Chaim Richman, Director of the International Department of the Temple Institute, was honored to serve as guide on the holy Temple Mount for a visiting delegation of B'nai Brith Canada. This visit was conducted in solidarity with, and at the request of, MK Moshe Feiglin, who has been ascending the Temple Mount on the 19th day of every Hebrew month for many years, but has been personally (and illegally) banned from doing so by Prime Minister Netanyahu.
B'NAI BRITH IS THE MOST WIDELY-KNOWN international Jewish human rights, humanitarian and advocacy organization. B'nai Brith works for Jewish unity, security, and continuity and fights anti-Semitism and intolerance around the world. Participants in today's visit to the Temple Mount included Mr. Eric Bissell, President of B'nai Brith Canada, and Dr. Frank Dimant, CEO of B'nai Brith Canada, as well as other officers and directors of the organization. The group members were able to learn firsthand, the severity of the lack of Jewish rights at our holiest place.
AS A GROUP THAT FIGHTS AGAINST ANTI-ANTISEMITISM all over the world and champions human rights, the participants were outraged and shocked by what they saw. They expressed indignation that at Israel's heart, the Temple Mount, the location of the Holy Temple, Jewish people could be subjected to such utter degradation, all on account of the fact that they are Jews. They expressed their solidarity and identification with the plight of the beleaguered Temple Mount and vowed to join the fight. The Temple Institute is deeply appreciative to the members of this group for their great dedication and sincerity.
