Rabbi Froman passes awayJeremy Sharon - Jerusalem Post - Froman had been an advocate for peace and dialogue with the Palestinians, despite also supporting the settlement movement since its inception. He had been strongly critical of the recent “price tag” phenomenon in which extremist elements in the settlement movement have carried out arson and vandalism attacks against Palestinian civilian and religious targets. After one of the first such attacks in 2010 against a Palestinian village in the Gush Etzion region where a mosque was torched, Froman visited the site of the attack, along with several other prominent area rabbis, to deliver new Korans to replace those burned in the attack. The rabbi held talks with former Fatah and PLO leader Yasser Arafat, Hamas founder Ahmed Yassin, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and many local religious leaders in the West Bank. bz5/3/2013
