Rabbi Dov Lior, a leading figure in the national-religious camp, along with several other rabbis, called on Monday for prayer and action to “nullify the decree” against “the settlements of the Binyamin region in general, and of Beit El in particular,” referring to the Ulpana outpost on the settlement’s outskirts, slated for evacuation by July 1.

In their public appeal, the rabbis called on youth in particular “to be present whenever possible across the Binyamin region in order to express solidarity with the residents of the settlements in order that they not be uprooted from their inheritance.”

The rabbis also called on the public in general to pray to God and exert influence over ministers and public officials in order that they do as much as possible to prevent the evacuation of the Ulpana outpost.
