President Rivlin and Argentine Chief Rabbi Gabriel Davidovich

President Reuven Rivlin on Tuesday spoke with Chief Rabbi Gabriel Davidovich of Argentina, who is in intensive care following a violent anti-Semitic attack at his home (see: Argentina’s Chief Rabbi Attacked Brutally at Home, Severely Injured).

“I am calling to find out how you are and to express my concern about the safety of the large Jewish community you lead,” the president told the chief rabbi, adding, “The State of Israel will do everything necessary to protect Jews wherever they choose to live and will take any steps to protect us from danger. We will not allow those who seek our harm us to pursue us.”

The president sent his regards to the Rabbi, and through him to the Jewish community, saying “We trust that you will get better and return to your many responsibilities as Rabbi of your community, and we send you a warm embrace from all Israel.”
