Vice President Joe Biden Eulogized Former PM Ariel Sharon During Knesset Ceremony January 13,2014 (video)

By Gldmeier @gldmeier

VP Joe Biden gave a fabulous speech at Ariel Sharon's funeral yesterday..

much of it, specifically when he speaks about the concern Sharon had for the future of the Jews and Jewish people, I heard the other day confirmed in an interview with Rabbi Yisrael Meir Lau, former Chief Rabbi of Israel. The radio host was talking to Rabbi Lau about Sharon, and Rabbi Lau related the last time they had spoken together.
It was 2 days before the stroke that knocked him out of commission. Rabbi Lau describes how Ariel Sharon was basically a king - very popular, had just set up a popular new party, they were heading to elections and predictions were that Sharon would draw 40-50 seats... he was all-powerful at the time. With all that, the phone call centered around his plans to set up a meeting with Rabbi Lau to discuss what they could do, a plan to put together, to solve Israel's two major problems - 1. the disconnect of Diaspora Jewry from Israel and 2. The Israeli youth become less and less connected to Judaism and the Torah.
