Jerusalem - Terror attacks in Jerusalem will not find the scholars studying at the Mir unprepared. Cans of pepper spray are now being sold at the entrance to the Mir Yeshiva.

Students there have watched an instructional video about how to use pepper spray in the event of an attack. Carrying pepper spray is legal in Israel, and there have been documented instances where using it has helped neutralize or prevent attacks. Additionally, just carrying the pepper spray increases the feeling of personal safety.

“Using pepper spray is very easy,” several people selling it told B’chadrei Charedim (http://bit.ly/1G9bb1y). “It’s important not spray it against the wind so it doesn’t bounce back in the direction of the sprayer. In the coming days, there will be a greater need for it as demand for pepper sprays increases and there is a very short supply at stores. The demand will be even greater as students return to the yeshiva and we will continue selling it.”

Hope that guys cigarette selling the pepper spray doesn't ignite assuming pepper spray is non combustible. What's to stop the Israeli arabs from stocking the spray as well?

The chances of getting stabbed is 1 in 50, 000. The chance of damaging one's health from the cigarette is 100%.

I went to Mirrer Yeshiva HS in the 1970s, and the goyim were not too friendly with us there either. I could have used some pepper spray sometimes.

pepper spray is for children

What is needed is for every jew to learn how to handle a gun accurately,and be trained to use it without hesitation.

Israel wake up !!!

Realize u are under attack and that there is a WAR declared on you and that every person is a target by these savages,so rise up and do something

Have we not learned anything from our past history?

The difference is that now we have access to weaponry,are totally organized,have our own military and we are not SHEEP going to the slaughter

NOW is the time to show up and take matters into our own hands

They shouldn't bother with pepper spray. Their learning will protect them. Where is their emuna?

BEWARE you're dealing with the Israeli court. Tear gas and pepper sprayed on Arabs will get you arrested. Today 3 women were arrested in Israel for precisely such self-defense !

Sit in the Bais Medrash day and night and never run around? This is you answer to being safe? Rather than keeping a Bochum safe it will lead to a generation of bochurim looking like the Pillsbury Doughboy.

Hi there..
A random vender came to the mir today to sell pepper spray.
It has no connection to The Mir ..and no bourchim watched any videos about it. AND most ppl that bought today were not even mir bourchim as the zman did not start yet..so no one really around.
Now I'm not against buying. .
BUT DON'T WRITE AN ARTICLE AS IF IT'S THE MIR SELLIING IT ETC...

There are only 170 thousand gun permits in all of israel. It's easier to get a gun permit even in NYC than in israel. Google the info and you will see. I know many heimisha yidden with legal firearms but in israel they have no chance unless they had a high ranking army rank or live on settlements. Also you are limited to 50 bullets. In America you can buy 50 thousand bullets and it's not a problem. You can buy as many guns legally as you want. Israel is a goyish run country that seeks to destroy Torah with tattoos and gay parades

Indeed, that is why many parents are waking up and not sending their children to Israel, if the children are immature or troubled.
