Bibi, Again With the Rebbe

Those in the handpicked crowd at the 92nd Street Y Thursday night weren’t the only ones who heard Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speak of being inspired by the late Lubavitcher Rebbe Menachem Mendel Schneerson. Earlier in the day, he told the Israeli press roughly the same story about the Rebbe’s message to him, which stressed the importance of standing up for truth when speaking before the United Nations.

Watch Netanyahu’s comments to the Israeli press, with English subtitles here:
