West­min­ster mitz­vah

The Jewish Chronicle - - LIFE -

A group of rabbinical stu­dents from Lon­don’s Lubav­itch Yeshivah who reg­u­larly go round town on Fri­days hand­ing out Shab­bat can­dles and en­cour­ag­ing men to don tefillin ex­tended their itin­er­ary last week to in­clude an ex­tra des­ti­na­tion: out­side Parliament. “I be­lieve the way to com­bat the dark­ness of ter­ror­ism is by adding in the light of mitzvos,” said one Jewish man who ac­cepted their in­vi­ta­tion.

This year is the 50th an­niver­sary of the Tefillin Cam­paign, which was launched by the Lubav­itcher Rebbe be­fore the Six-Day War.
