Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s New York Yom Tov

Due to his address to the United Nations General Assembly last week, Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett spent part of the Sukkos holiday in New York City.

The 149-year-old Modern Orthodox synagogue on the Upper East Side is a favorite of Bennett’s as he used to frequent it with his wife when they lived in New York. Their attendance there led to their more dedicated observance of Jewish religious tradition. Even though Bennett’s hotel was a mile away, his attendance at services for Shemini Atzeres was both special to the congregation and to Bennett himself. Read more here.
