This week the unthinkable happened–the Israeli government has announced that American Yeshivos and Seminaries will be allowed to open in Elul. Rabbi Nechemya Malinowitz, the head of the coalition of Yeshivas and Seminaries for B’nei Chu”l, has spent weeks working with Gedolim and government officials to pull this off. In this riveting interview, he shares the backstory that many people are unaware of. He discusses his fascinating conversations with HaRav Moshe Hillel Hirsch shlit”a. He talks about the immense achdus and Kiddush Hashem that has come out of all this. He explains why he believes the government will keep this policy in place and not retract. And he explains why despite a total shutdown on foreign travelers, the government has agreed to let American students into the country.
