MK Rabbi Dov Lipman Speaks in Cincinnati
Dr. Benny Koplewitz, head of the Pediatric Diagnostic Radiology
Department of Hadassah Hospital, Bloomberg Mother and Child Center, was
in Cincinnati visiting at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical
Center as part of an Israel Medical Exchange program that Cincinnati
Children’s has established with Hadassah Medical Organization.
He also attended a Jewish Federation of
Cincinnati event, “Israelity: Redefining Reality in Israel” with Member
of the Israeli Knesset, Rabbi Dov Lipman. Believing that isolation
breeds extremism, Lipman works to bring members of the ultra-Orthodox
community "into the fold" by providing them with general education,
encouraging them to work while they continue to study Torah, and
requiring their military or civil service.
The event was part of “ISRAELITY: Redefining Reality in Israel,” a series of open dialogues in which social innovators give first-hand accounts of life in an unknown and unshown Israel—their personal ISRAELITYs. Rabbi Dov Lipman visited Cincinnati to discuss his vision for the State of Israel. He met with Jewish community leaders and professionals and then gave a public lecture. Dr. Koplewitz attend both events with Hadassah National Board member, Carol Ann Schwartz.
