Mr. David M. Friedman, the Ambassador of the United States to Israel, received a meaningful gift on Thursday, in a meeting at the Rebbe’s Ohel in Queens.
Bochurim of Yeshivas Tzeirei Hashluchim of Tzfas, who arranged for the printing of a Tanya in Israel’s newly inaugurated Trump Heights neighborhood in the Golan, presented the Ambassador with a copy of the Tanya which was printed there last month.
The beautiful leather-bound edition is embossed with a background resembling the Kotel, and is engraved in gold letters with the Ambassador’s full Hebrew name, Dovid Melech Hakohen Friedman.
The meeting was arranged by Rabbi Zalman Wolowik, Director of Chabad of the Five Towns and a close friend of the Ambassador.
The Tanya was generously sponsored by Mr. Jonathan Tratt and family.
Rabbi Wolowik presented the Ambassador with the Tanya, and said, “Chabad doesn’t waste any time,” noting that just a week after the Ramat Trump neighborhood was officially announced, the bochurim of the Tzfas Yeshiva had arranged for the printing to take place.
The Ambassador viewed photos of the printing, and Rabbi Wolowik then learned the first page of the Tanya with the Ambassador.
