The traveling new Torah scroll commissioned to be written by Israeli airlines El Al has ended in one of the most unexpected and least favorable places – the United Nations.
In the General Assembly hall, a staple venue for anti Israel rhetoric, final letters in the scroll were inked by Israel’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Ron Prosor and El Al CEO Elazar Shekedi.
Standing there, Crown Heights sofer Rabbi Moshe Klein was reminded of what the Rebbe told Benjamin Netanyahu when he served in the United Nations.
“The Rebbe said this is a house of darkness, but he also said that we need to worry for our loved ones.”
Prosor agreed to lay Tefillin to further solidify Israel’s position in the often changing world.
