Dozens of workers at the Ramat Gan branch of Israel Postal Service sanctified the Name of Heaven when they refused to distribute missionary material to thousands of mailboxes.
On Monday the letter carriers arrived at work to find that among the letters and other mailings addressed to Ramat Gan residents were pamphlets with missionary material and horrific tumo distributed by missionary organizations in order to ensnare innocent Jews.
Although most of them are not observant, the workers notified the branch management that they did not intend to distribute the material. Seeing they were adamant in their refusal, the branch management did not force them.
In recent months the anti-missionary section of Lev L'Achim has published a number of warnings about missionary activity to post office box holders around the country. Missionary organizations have tried to leverage security threats to raise fears, offering to help people overcome these fears through heresy and idolatry.
Rabbi Moshe Lachovar, one of the heads of Lev L'Achim's anti-missionary department, instructed field workers to encourage the public to destroy these pamphlets. He noted that in the past, when mailings of this type were distributed, only a handful of people read the material and required help and guidance.
