Rabbi David Stav, running for the position of Chief Rabbi of Israel, went to the Rebbe's Ohel after landing in New York.
Leading candidate for the position of Chief Rabbi of Israel Rabbi David Shlomo Stav Shlita landed in New York last night for a short visit and went directly from the airport to the Ohel in Queens.
Rabbi Stav was warmly greeted by Rabbi Abba Refson, director of the Chabad House at the Ohel, accompanied by renowned lecturer and author Rabbi Simon Jacobson. After a short study of Chassidus and writing a Pa"N, Rabbi Stav, who is currently in the midst of a tumultuous election campaign, entered the sacred Ohel where he prayed for his success and the success and salvation of Israel.
The visit was organized by a personal friend, Rabbi Yoel Kaplan, the Rebbe's emissary to the Balkans and with the help of Bentzi Sasson.
