Pre-Rosh Hashanah Visit to Hevron Inspires MK


Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz (Likud - Yisrael Beiteinu) visited the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hevron on Wednesday. He announced, "there were Jews from all over the country who came to pray in the footsteps of our forefathers and foremothers. I assume some of them were not religious. Well, I too am not a religious Jew, but I felt a sense of belonging and connection to our Jewish roots and Jewish history, which began here, in this place nearly 4,000 years ago," Katz stated.
