MK Lipman Salutes New Olim from North America


Member of Knesset Dov Lipman greeted more than 200 new immigrants who arrived, Tuesday morning, on a Nefesh B'Nefesh organization charter flight from New York.

Noting that Israel is going through difficult times, Rabbi Lipman cited all the reasons for them not to come, including missiles and terror tunnels. Instead, he said, they listened to the voice of Moses from this past Shabbat's Torah portion, when he asked the tribes who wanted to set up shop east of the Jordan River, "Are your brothers to go to war while you stay here?" (Numbers 32:6).
