As the summer zman in the yeshivos in Eretz Yisroel and abroad is about to launch, yeshiva students are utilizing the remaining days of bein hazmanim to travel around the country.

A favorite spot of these youths is the shore of Lake Kinneret in Teveria, where they camp out on the beach.

Last night, as some boys were asleep in their tent, suspicious noises awoke one of them. Leaving his tent to investigate, he made a shocking discovery – the boys’ backpacks were missing.

The boy woke his friends, and they began a search for their bags. They were particularly concerned about their Tefillin being stolen. A passerby advised them to search in hiding places, where the thieves possibly dumped the ‘loot,’ and fled.

Sure enough, minutes later the backpacks were found in the lavatory, sans the Tefillin. Their joy at finding the bags was short-lived when they discovered, to their horror, that the pack holding the Tefillin was set on fire by the thieves, and another pair found in the sink.

The desecration of the Tefillin was not a spur of the moment act of brutality, rather a planned attack on the holy object, as acetone was used to light the fire.

The owner of the burnt Tefillin is an 18 year old orphan, who was gifted the Tefillin by his father, his cousin related to Kikar HaShabbat. A fund has been set up to replace his Tefillin. If you wish to take part in the mitzvah, please contact kikar@kikar.co.il
