Rabin, Begin, and The Rebbe

Wednesday, 7 December, 2011 - 11:26 pm

Yitchok Rabin, Prime Minister of Israel, recalls his visit to the Rebbe as Israel's Ambassador to the United States in 1972.

"I felt that I met a unique personality, a person that on the one hand lives in the world of the Torah but has got practical sense to the realities of life everywhere in the world and great sensitivity for the preservation of the Jewish people." 

On July 17, 1977, Prime Minister Begin went to seek the Rebbe's blessings before going to meet with President Carter at the Camp David peace talks with Egypt. This short film details Begin's historic visit with the Rebbe, and is comprised of beautiful and rare archival footage, audio and photos. 

"The Rebbe is a great man in Israel, all of us respect him, all of us accept his judgement, he is a great lover of the House of Israel. He has shown his deep sentiment and love for our children. His blessings are very important to me."
