Sharon's nephew Rabbi Ofer Miodovnik to protest Gaza pullout

Mati Wagner, THE JERUSALEM POST May. 5, 2005


***Hundreds of rabbis from the so-called messianic camp of the Lubavitcher Hassidim will meet Thursday in Kfar Chabad to formulate a battle strategy against the disengagement plan, which they see as an imminent threat to the Jews of Israel.

They will also discuss ways of better disseminating the message that the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, is the messiah.

One of the participants reportedly will be Rabbi Ofer Miodovnik, one of the rabbis at the Chabad yeshiva in Tzfat (Safed), who also happens to be Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's nephew. Sharon's two deceased wives were the sisters of Miodovnik's mother. Miodovnik grew up in a secular household before becoming observant.
