“The email was one of the most personal I’ve ever received,” said Rabbi Eran Shor in an e-mails to The Jerusalem Times, referring to the one she received from the Israel Police.
“You are one of us.”
“When I opened the email, I felt a strange sensation that I had never experienced before,” Shor continued.
“It was like a magic trick that I did not even know existed.”
Shor received the message from the Tel Aviv Police, which said that the sender’s identity was being concealed by a security service.
According to the Israeli Police, it is illegal for an individual to send an email without a court order, so Shor received a court-issued court order allowing the e-newsletter.
“I have received numerous emails like this from the police in recent years,” said Shor, a rabbi at the Yeshiva University’s Monsey campus.
“They are trying to get me to write an e‑mail in order to cover their tracks.”
According to Shor’s e-letter, she received the e‑newsletter after her father died last year.
“After he died, my father asked me to deliver a message to him,” Shur said.
“The message that was delivered to my father was a message that I received from police officers, who were also on duty at the time.”According
