We were honored that our founder, Israel Prize Laureate Rabbi Yitzhak David Grossman, was invited to light the fourth candle of Chanukah yesterday, at a special candle lighting ceremony at the tunnels of the Western Wall, accompanied by a National Security Delegation of the US Government.

The ceremony included Rabbi Shmuel Rabinovitz, CEO of the Western Wall Heritage Fund, Mordechai Eliav, who hosted the Ambassador of the United States in Israel, Mr. David Friedman, United States National Security Advisor Robert O ' Brien, US National Security Council Senior Advisor on Middle East and North Africa Affairs Rob Greenway, Assistant President of the United States, as well as National Security Advisor and head of the National Security Council Meir Ben-Shabbat.

The Ambassador of the United States to Israel, Mr. David Friedman, congratulated everyone and said, ′′We love Jerusalem, and even if we don't always say it, you see it in our actions. It's not just the recognition and transfer of the Embassy, any time any of us has free time, we visit Jerusalem. You'll see more and more people coming. The heart of Jerusalem is the heart of the United States, we are together in this. We share the same values. We are brothers and sisters and will continue to come here as long as you continue to host us."
