CWN Editor's Note: A Benedictine abbot in Jerusalem questioned whether yeshivas are encouraging a “heartbreaking” form of religious extremism among young Jews in Israel, after two youths spat at and cursed him.

Abbot Nikodemus Schnabel of the Dormition Abbey in Jerusalem was walking through the Old City when the extremists confronted him. The incident was captured by a German television crew that was filming the abbot.
