The Jewish Defense league, JDL (RL) is one of the most – if not the most – controversial, but very effective Jewish organisation. Our motto in SL (just like in RL) is” Never Again!” ‘Never again,’ by words, deeds and actions.
The JDL was founded in 1968 by Rabbi Meir Kahane zt’l, hy’d. Its goal was to protect Jews, and to protest local manifestations of anti-semitism. Rabbi Kahane founded the JDL to combat the rampant growth of anti-semitism in the innter cities. At that time the poor and elderly Jews were easy targets for Jew hating thugs. Rabbi Kahane rescued these abandoned Jews and changed the image of the weak, vulnerable Jews to one of a fighter who strikes back fiercely against any tyrants. Anti-semites around the world soon began to respect and fear the Rabbi’s organisaton. The JDL went on to other local issues and problems as well as global Jewish problems.
Our goal at SL is to inform people of the growing anti-semitism in the world, to fight it in any possible way, to share our thoughts, concepts and Jewish values, but ofcourse also to share with them, the light of our Holy Torah.
The JDL unconditionally condemns terrorism of all forms. Terrorism is NEVER a legitimate means to furtherance of political goals.
