This is a youth hostel which is a first stop for some in the BT circuit. It's run by Meir Shuster who's been a long time activist in M'karving (to draw near, ie to missionize) people.
One day I was at Aish Hatorah's breakfast facility when Shuster was there yelling at some kid because the kid didn't want to stay with Shuster's act. Now, wait a minute. Why should a person just drop whatever plans they and their family made for their lives just because they meet up with these rabbis in Israel?
Do you really think that these rabbis hold the key to your salvation? I don't think so. And staying in Israel now is very dangerous.
