Amidst the terrible crisis in Ukraine, Yad L’Achim is waging a defensive war against missionaries operating along the Moldova-Ukraine border.
As it stands, the cult members are seeking to take advantage of the distress of Jews escaping for their lives to get them to convert to their religion. After securing considerable evidence on the matter- Yad L’Achim is certain that Christian missionaries have been sent to the border to identify Jews and offer them assistance as a way of getting them to join their churches in Israel.
Yad L’Achim reached out to the local Jewish community in Moldova and appealed for help in identifying Jews from Ukraine staying in the refugee camp that Chabad set up in the city and protecting them from missionaries. The activists show up every morning at the borders, positioning themselves near the missionary booths and warning Jews of the identity of the missionaries and their sinister intentions.
Once this is done, the Jewish refugees provide their personal details, which are quickly passed on to Jewish communities in the country that will be taking them in to facilitate their absorption. The information is also sent to Yad L’Achim headquarters in Bnei Brak which maintains contact with their refugees upon their arrival in Israel.
Since its launch 10 days ago, the program has succeeded in saving hundreds of Jews from the clutches of Christian missionaries.
