New York rabbi hands out cash in Sderot

Rabbi Mordechai Aderet hands out NIS 200 bills to market-goers in Qassam-battered town

Rabbi Mordechai Aderet of Monsey, New York toured Sderot Sunday and handed out NIS 200 (about $58) bills to the residents of the Qassam-Battered city.


Residents flocked to the open-air market after rumors of the benevolent rabbi's gesture spread throughout the southern city.

One of the rabbi's assistants told Ynet the rabbi received word of the city's despair and offered to help the residents out and assist the small business owners who have suffered greatly from the incessant rocket fire.


Young girls in revealing attire who approached the rabbi were given the money but were asked to "dress more modestly and preserve the Jewish tradition."


Following his visit to the market the rabbi later made his way to additional neighborhoods in Sderot and handed out more money to the locals.
