The Prime Minister of Israel, Mr. Benjamin Netanyahu, sent his greetings to an event honoring the 108th anniversary of the birth of the Rebbe, of righteous memory, this coming Friday: a bar mitzvah of 108 orphans organized by Colel Chabad.

In introducing his blessing and greeting to the bar mitzvah boys, Netanyahu said:

It is 108 years since the Lubavitcher Rebbe, a man who is a symbol of giving and kindness, an extraordinary personality, was born. I had the merit to meet with him several times and every meeting with him made a deep impression on me. Today you are celebrating 108 bar mitzvahs
