An Evangelical leader who believes Jews can accept Jesus without giving up their Jewish identity will be the keynote speaker in two weeks at an event for Birthright Israel alumni, sponsored by Birthright NEXT and the Jewish Enrichment Center.
Thousands of Israelis gathered for the funeral of Rabbi Elazar Abuhatzeira, a prominent kabbalist murdered by an apparently disgruntled advice-seeker.
The 70-year-old Abuhatzeira was buried Friday on Jerusalem’s Mount of Olives, the day after he was killed at a Beersheva yeshiva, where he was receiving visitors.
Asher Dahan, 42, reportedly confessed to stabbing Abuhatzeira to death. The alleged killer had reportedly received advice from Abuhatzeira in the past and told police that he was disappointed that the rabbi had failed to solve his marital problems.
