Video: Israeli PM Invokes The Rebbe in Speech to Volunteers

During his speech before the volunteers participating in the annual Masa Israel internship program, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu invoked the Lubavitcher Rebbe in his plea that upon returning to their countries of origin that they defend the state of Israel.

“When I came as a young man to be Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations, that place is not always kind to Israel and it is not always kind to the truth, I met a great rabbi, the Lubavitcher Rebbe, and he said to me ‘remember when you go into the UN that even in the darkest hall, if you light one candle, people will see the light of that candle wide and far’”

Netanyahu concluded with a request “when you go back to your respective countries, and I want you each to light a candle of truth I want you to stand up for Israel and stand up for the truth because you have been part of that truth.”

Masa Israel Journey offers young adults between the ages of 18 and 30 immersive, life-changing gap year, study abroad, post-college and volunteer experiences in Israel, connecting them to programs that meet their interests, offering scholarships, providing expertise, and supporting them throughout the entire process.
