Ukrainian Pres. Candidate Donated Golden Menorah


Vaadim Rabinovitch, who is now running for President of Ukraine, was the philanthropist behind the large golden menorah in the Old City of Jerusalem. The well-known landmark was built to the exact specifications of the original menorah of the Holy Temple in ancient days. Rabbi Chaim Richman, the international director of the Temple Institute which commissioned the creation of the menorah stated, "Vaadim is a dedicated patron of Jerusalem. We wish him success in his presidential race and in all that he does on behalf of the Jewish people."
