WATCH: Rabbi Ascherman encounters settler & invites him for additional dialogue

1 Comment 26 April 2015

While waiting for Palestinian farmers to safely arrive at their lands in the Shilo Valley on April 21st 2015, Rabbi Arik Ascherman was passed by a settler in a car who identified him, turned around,  and began this conversation.

In the recording Rabbi Ascherman mentions two other settlers who “visited” his home previously when we want not present.

That visit took place a week before this recording.

Again and again, Rabbi Ascherman shows his interest in having open, respectful dialogue with settlers and others who disagree or are concerned by the work of RHR.

The day ended when the army refused to let the farmers go back the way they themselves had brought them. Rather, they had to drive home. Firstly, they didn’t have cars. Secondly, even if they did, they had a donkey with them.  Eventually, they had to give in and order a truck, making it clear to the OT legal advisor’s office that this was unacceptable.
