Rabbi David Eliezrie, Rabbi of Congregation Beth Meir HaCohen/Chabad in Yorba Linda, California, and a noted leader and advisor on both local and national Jewish affairs, shares insights into the dilemma about what comes first – our nationality or our Jewishness? Weaving his trademark wit, powerful questions, and some compelling anecdotes about the Pope and Nelson Mandela’s dealings with rabbis, as well as a powerful video clip of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sharing an incredible interaction he had with the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Eliezrie makes the case that Jews are respected when who they are on the outside matches who we have always been on the inside. This lecture was part of the Sinai Scholars series for college students and was delivered at the National Jewish Retreat.
