Menachem Begin and The Rebbe

Today, the 4th of Adar II marks the anniversary of the passing of Prime Minister Menachem Begin in 1992. Prime Minister Begin came to speak with the Rebbe on many occasions.

Shortly after he was elected Prime Minister in 1977, he traveled to America to meet with President Carter. On July 17, 1977 before going to meet with President Carter at the Camp David peace talks with Egypt, Begin went to seek the Rebbe’s blessings. This short film details Begin’s historic visit with the Rebbe, and is comprised of beautiful and rare archival footage, audio and photos.

Ultimately the Rebbe was disappointed with Begin and spoke against the Camp David Accords, which Begin signed with Egypt several years later.
