A number of reports have been published in the Jewish religious press about the activities of a group of zealots / ultra-orthodox chassidic-like charedi THUGS (called the Sikrikim). These people have assaulted little girls going to a school they don’t like (and are still doing) in Ramat Beit Shemesh, damaged stores that don’t agree with whatever stringency they wish to apply in Jerusalem, and police reports involve actual physical attacks.
They may dress the part of ultra-orthodox charedim and chassidic Jews and even attend an institute of advanced Torah studies (a kollel), but their actions directly and forcefully contravene the most basic foundational Torah concepts.
Their names are Avraham Hirschman and Shalom Baruch Rost/Rust. (Pictured left is Avraham Hirschman according to Ynetnews.)
Assuming you do not support the activities of these sikrikim (thugs dressed as ultra-orthodox Jews performing extremist violent actions), do not give them money!

They may say they are collecting for their kollel (yeshiva or advanced Torah institute), for hachnassat kallah (helping needy Jewish brides afford a wedding and to set up their new home), a major surgery someone needs or whatever.
Whatever they say they are collecting for, they are collecting to fund their future (extremist violent) activities.
