By COL in Kfar Chabad
Israel’s premier hopeful Tzipi Livni has received Happy New Year wished from a Chabad-Lubavitch official ahead of Rosh Hashana.
Rabbi Binyomin Lifshitz, chairman of the Kfar Chabad governing council, has paid a visit to her office in Jerusalem on Sunday, Oct. 28.
Livni two weeks ago replaced Prime Minister Ehud Olmert as leader of Kadima, the largest party in the Israeli Knesset. She has 42 days to form a coalition.
“The responsibility is now in your hands and we all pray you protect the country properly,” Lifshitz told Livni during their short meeting.
He mentioned the Lubavitcher Rebbe’s opinion on giving priority to the security of Jewish lives.
Lifshitz gave her a jar of honey for the new Jewish year and Livni recalled her connection to the Chabad back from the days she practiced law.
