950 Jewish Children Reported Attending Mission Schools in Tel Aviv

The Public Council for Combatting Christian Missions in Israel launched a campaign today to enlist public backing for its goals.

Shlomo Bukai, Council chairman, declared that 950 Jewish children were being educated in mission schools in the greater Tel Aviv area. He said the Council wanted each of the 700 synagogues in the area to “undertake the cost of removing at least one child from a mission school and supporting and educating the child until the age of self-support.”

The Council is a central agency for organizations of anti-mission groups. It includes among its members leaders of the Tel Aviv Religious Council, Members of Parliament and other public figures.
