Chabad have printed a million copies of Psalms, which were being distributed to residents and IDF soldiers in the North, it was reported on Tuesday. "During our activities in the North we discovered there was a huge demand for psalms," said Habad spokesman Rabbi Menahem Brod. Russian-born business tycoon and Betar Jerusalem owner, Arkady Gaydamak, was funding the initiative. Brod noted that all the books of Psalms were placed in a nylon pouch in order that they could be put in a pocket and brought into the bathroom. According to Jewish law it is prohibited to take holy books into the restroom.
