Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visits Chief Rabbi of Migdal Ha'Emek, Rabbi Yitzchak Dovid Grossman in Migdal Ha'Emek on November 6, 2017.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu carried out the mitzvah of “bikur cholim” — the commandment of visiting the sick — on Monday, in a trip to Migdal Ha’Emek, where he paid a visit to Rabbi Yitzhak David Grossman, chief rabbi of the city.

Rabbi Grossman, world-renowned for his role as founder and head of Migdal Ohr educational institutions, is constantly on the go — but this time he was forced to stay home, due to a broken leg.


The prime minister sat with the rabbi as he explained how he managed to accomplish that feat.

Netanyahu then wished him a quick and complete recovery. Grossman is famous for his travels around the world, fundraising to keep his educational programs alive so Israeli children are able to attend the myriad programs at the Migdal Ohr campuses in northern Israel.
