An envelope with a white powder and a threatening letter was found at the home of Rabbi Shalom Cohen on Monday, a member of Shas’s Council of Torah Sages.

According to Army Radio, in the envelope, found by Cohen's wife, a letter read, "If you continue to squeeze state budgets at our expense, the expense of students and the expense of our culture, you will pay a heavy price, stop sucking our blood, bearers of stinky beards and sideburns."

The envelope also contained an illustration of a skull with wigs. It was taken by security officials for investigation.
