Science Minister Rabbi Prof. Daniel Hershkowitz was a guest at the Seret Vishnitz Chassidic Court on Wednesday night, Lag B’Omer.
The presence of the minister, who heads the HaBayit HaYehudi party and is affiliated with the dati leumi community, was a surprise to many. It appears his grandson is three-years-old and he came to participate in the rebbe’s upsherin for children.
After his hair was cut, the rebbe shlita presented the child with a pair of aleph beis tzizis. The minister was received by the rebbe in a very warm fashion.
