The Man We Need Now III
Rabbi Haskel Lookstein has been a longtime advocate for Israel. But lately Rabbi Lookstein has become known for high rankings in Newsweek's rabbinical popularity contest, preparing the conversion of Ivanka Trump, and participating in church prayer services in honor of our 44th President.
In January 2001, as President Clinton and Prime Minister Barak begged Yasser Arafat to take a break from killing Israelis to accept the Old City of Jerusalem, Rabbi Lookstein's Congregation Kehilath Jeshurun hosted a program at which we could express our pain, shock and outrage.
When The New York Times bashed Israel unrelentingly, it was Rabbi Lookstein who spoke up, organizing a temporary but costly boycott.
Today we again need Rabbi Lookstein to publicly speak out for Israel and to defend its rights and interests.
