URGENT

from Shomron - via the Voice of Judea
SEVERAL HUNDRED SOLDIERS AND POLICE HAVE BEEN DISPATCHED TO TAPUACH FOR THE DISSMANTLING OF THE SYNAGOGUE ON TAPUACH WEST AND ARE PRESENTLY CONVERGING ON THE REMOTE HILL TOP. HUNDREDS OF JEWS ARE MAKING THEIR WAY TO THE SYNAGOGUE TO SHOW SOLIDARITY WITH THE RESIDENTS OF TAPUACH WEST AND TO PARTICIPATE IN AN EMERGENCY PRAYER VIGIL BEING ORGANIZED FOR 8:00 PM TONIGHT.

Residents of Tapuach west in the Shomron hills of Israel have sent an urgent plea to Jews around the world to pray for their synagogue that is at risk of being torn down by the Israeli troops to satisfy American and Arab dictates.

The synagogue was built one month ago to facilitate the basic religious needs of the approximately 100 Jewish residents on the hill. Extreme anti religious minister Tommy Lapid of the Shinui party demanded the destruction of the synagogue several weeks ago. The synagogue was built in memory of Rabbi Meir Kahane as well as in memory of his son Binyamin and daughter in law Talya hy"d. The 3 Kahanes were murdered by Arab terrorists. Binyamin and Talya were ambushed and killed several miles away from Tapuach 3 years ago; their 6 orphaned children continue to reside in Tapuach.

In addition to requesting the active participating in tonight's prayer vigil and in addition to the urgent request for Jews worldwide to join in prayer on behalf of the synagogue, residents are also requesting desperately needed funds to house and feed the hundreds of people who are coming to the hill and to continue with building plans of the synagogue on the hill. Yekutiel Ben Yaakov said
"we will not be broken regardless of the evil decree; we will continue to study Torah and pray in this holy synagogue on this holy land of Eretz Yisrael. They can come with their tanks and come with their tractors, we come in the name of Gd and the spirit of Judaism will overcome the evil edicts of the modern day Hellenists."
Desperately needed funds can be mailed or Fed Ex'd to the
