Help stop Magen David Adom’s racist rabbi

Yesterday, Israel Religious Action Center (IRAC) launched a campaign to stop Magen David Adom, Israel’s renowned emergency service, from appointing Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu, chief Rabbi of Safed, as head of their new rabbinical committee.

The committee will be setting religious guidelines on gender relations and issues of Tsniut (modesty) for volunteers in MDA. This appointment is very unfortunate, since Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu is infamous for his racist statements. You can read some of his statements here.

Read the full story here and help stop Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu by sending an email to the American Friends of Magen David Adom expressing your disapproval of the appointment here
