Israeli Mail Carriers Refuse to Deliver New Testaments

Workers say such distribution would be illegal proselytizing.

Postal workers in Ramat Gan have refused to deliver thousands of copies of Hebrew-language Christian materials, including copies of the New Testament. They asserted that distributing the materials would violate Jewish law because it would be proselytizing. Israeli law does not prevent the dissemination of written materials.

It was not clear who mailed the materials. The Israel Postal Company said that as a government entity, it had no right to control what it can or cannot distribute and would therefore ensure that the materials were distributed.
