WATCH: Israeli FM Consulted With The Rosh Yeshiva About His Visit To Ukraine


Following the visit of Foreign Minister Eli Cohen to Ukraine last week, a video was revealed on Motzei Shabbos of Cohen speaking to HaGaon HaRav Gershon Edelstein about his trip.

Earlier this month, Cohen had visited HaRav Edelstein the day after he returned from his historical trip to Sudan, and had apparently consulted with the Rosh Yeshivah about his upcoming trip to Ukraine.

Cohen asked HaRav Edelstein if the Rosh Yeshivah has a message to convey to the Jewish kehillah in Ukraine.

HaRav Edelstein responded: “They should do as much as they can to be oisek in Torah and mitvos – all will be great zechuyos that will help them to hold on, the zechuyos that will enable them to survive.”

Cohen then asked for a special bracha that he’ll succeed in his position at the Foreign Ministry for the good of Am Yisrael.

HaRav Edelstein responded: “Siyata Dishmaya in all your activities for the good of each person in Klal Yisrael.”
