The Kaliver Rebbe, Rav Menachem Mendel Taub, sent special blessings to President Donald Trump for recognizing Yerushalayim as the capital of Israel.
“My dear president of the United States, I am very very happy since I saw what the president of the United States, a young president, had the greatness to talk to the whole world [about recognizing Yerushalayim], you love everybody.
“Now let me tell you my dear president, I am now more than 90 and I am broken from everything, 90% of my family were killed in the Holocaust. Now to hear from the president of the United States saying these words. People are jealous that the president did such nice things for Israel.
“After I was in Auschwitz, they wanted to throw me in a fire. I said to the Almighty, “Help me. Shema Yisroel.” My G-d let me live, and I was saved. Miracles after miracles, the Almighty helped me.
“These words what you said made the world world believe that if you do, you will get help from the Almighty. I was very happy to hear while I was lying in [sick] in bed that the president came to Eretz Yisroel and was by the Kosel.
“I want to wish you from the depths of my heart that you should have great success. Don’t worry if people are talking bad about you. The Almighty is with you and He should help you and the world should know that the US helps everybody, anytime. Thank you very much and a lot of blessings to you. Thank you very much.”
