MK Dov Lipman visits Har Nof synagogue

US-born Yesh Atid MK Rabbi Dov Lipman attends the prayer service at the Bnei Torah synagogue in Har Nof this morning, saying he wants to “demonstrate support for the regular minyan attendees” and convey the message that the Jewish people in Israel will not be intimidated by terror attacks.

“I was inspired by the intensity of this morning’s prayers and was touched deeply by the cries and tears of those who publicly gave thanks to God for surviving yesterday’s attack,” he says.
