Speaker of the Knesset Visits Chabad Headquarters

Speaker of the Knesset Amir Ohana, who is visiting New York, met with Rabbi Yehuda Krinsky at Chabad-Lubavitch World Headquarters Saturday night. 

Ohana shared warm words with Krinsky, the chairman of Chabad’s worldwide educational and social services divisions. He expressed appreciation for the work that Chabad does on behalf of world Jewry and presented Rabbi Krinsky with the gift from the Knesset: a Book of Psalms. 

Israel is a nation in trauma, said Ohana. “But we will come back stronger than ever.” Rabbi Krinsky lauded the strong stance of the government on making the security of the country and the return of the hostages paramount in the face of international pressure. 

Following the meeting with Rabbi Krinsky and members of Chabad leadership, the Knesset Speaker visited the Rebbe’s office where he spent some time in prayer, as well as the Chabad Headquarters communications center from where the Rebbe’s talks were broadcast to Israel and around the world.
