Prime Minister Naftali Bennett organized a Kabbalat Shabbat service for the entire Israeli delegation, including the traveling press, at the hotel where they are staying in Washington.

The delegation was not scheduled to stay the weekend, but after Bennett’s meeting with US President Joe Biden was delayed due to the deadly terror attack in Kabul, the premier’s team made arrangements for him to spend Shabbat at the hotel, including setting up a makeshift synagogue.
