Rabbi Dov Lipman

Posted: Wednesday, April 9, 2014 10:00 am

Rabbi Dov Lipman is a freshman member of the Knesset and a member of Yesh Atid, a new Israeli political party that translated Israel’s 2011 economic protests into a surprising 19-seat presence in the Knesset after the January 2013 elections. The party, led by former journalist Yair Lapid, voices a broad range of social and economic concerns, appealing primarily to the sensibilities of the Jewish state’s middle class. 

Lipman, who was ordained at the Orthodox Yeshivas Ner Yisroel in Baltimore, is the first American in the Knesset in a generation, as Valley Beit Midrash says in publicizing his talk, titled “Driving Change in Israeli Society,” at Temple Chai on May 7 (see details box on this page). Reached by phone in Jerusalem, he said of his upcoming talk, “It’s really about the future of Israel, which certainly relates as well to the things I’m working on.”
