JEM has released a new DVD that examines a series of conversations between policymakers in Jerusalem and the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, entitled Faithful and Fortified.
“We’ve known for the longest time that there were deep connections between the Rebbe and the top echelons of Israel’s leadership,” said JEM’s director, Rabbi Elkanah Shmotkin. “We’ve always hoped to go deeper than what was previously known.”
Among those appearing on Faithful and Fortified are diplomat Yehuda Avner; current Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu; former prime ministers Rabin and Ariel Sharon; General Mordechai Piron, chief rabbi of the IDF; and Efraim Halevy, former director of Mossad, Israel’s national intelligence agency.
“If you checked the Rebbe’s appointment book, you’d see unlimited meetings with generals and politicians,” said Shlomo Nakdimon, one of Israel’s foremost journalists and political commentators. “It all flowed from the need to defend Israel.”
