Jason Greenblatt, US President Donald Trump's peace envoy, received a blessing Wednesday from Rabbi Gershon Edelstein, the Rosh Yeshiva of the Ponevezh Yeshiva, Channel 2 reported. The yeshiva, located in Bnai Brak, is considered to be on the highest level among Litvish yeshivas in Israel.

Greenblatt had returned to Jerusalem from Jordan, where he met with PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas and other Arab leaders to discuss the Arab-Israeli peace process.

Greenblatt, and Orthodox Jew, received a blessing for success in his task to bring peace between Israel and its Arab neighbors from Rabbi Edelstein.

"He who seeks to do good deeds will receive aid from heaven," Rabbi Edelstein said.
