why give attention?

Why are shedding light on a man who turned his back on his people? He has one agenda and that was his climb in his political career.

he was a jew

There is a whole interaction with the Rebbe and essentially during & about the Yom Kippur war that is worthy to mention here

Verifiable?

I read that he said quite disparaging things about Jews. That is concerning.

He betrayed Israel many times, he bent over backwards to show his non-allegiance to the Jewish State. He could have done so much to help us.

Even if Chas Visholom a Yid was misguided, he is still a Yid.

He was also a Shana upireish having studied Torah in depth as a young man. His frum relatives broke off contact after he intermarried because he should have known better.

What is a FACT is that he strongly advised president Nixon to hold back on desperately needed arms for Israel during the Yom-Kipper war. just to teach them who’s boss.

I suspect it was coming under the sway of the intensely charismatic Nelson Rockefeller who could seduce him with wealth, power and fame, that led him far astray. But still, Yisroel, af al pi shechottuh, Yisroel hu, and kol Yisroel avreivim zeh b’zeh. Does anyone have more info about how the Rebbe felt about him, did they have any contact, would they have spoken in German? May the neshomo of Avraham ben Eliezer… Read more »
