VP Mike Pence spoke at the Knesset today, offering the US’s steadfast support for its Mid East ally. While the Vice President was in the building, one Knesset member took the opportunity to thank the Trump administration for another act of benevolence shown to the Jewish people — the commutation of Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin.
MK Yisroel Eichler stood up to express a gratitude felt by the entire Jewish community at the President’s kind commutation of Rubashkin, who was given a harsh 28 year sentence at the hands of a cruel judge, Linda Reade.
Rubashkin release last month was widely celebrated all over the world. His release came about after the tireless effort undertaken by many askonim were met with success, thanks to the kindness of our President, a true friend of the Jews.
