Rabbi Marvin Hier to Deliver Prayer at Trump Inauguration

Rabbi Marvin Hier

My good friend Rabbi Marvin (Moshe Chaim) Hier will offer a prayer at President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration. A Torah-observant Jew and a two-time Oscar winner, Rabbi Hier is the dean and founder of the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles. Karen and I have known him for more than thirty years. He is a good man, blessed with a ferociously keen intellect and a wicked sense of humor.

Our family has had Shabbat dinners at Rabbi and Mrs. Hier’s home. When we were sitting shiva for our beloved Ariel Chaim, Rabbi Hier and his wife spent a good deal of time consoling us.

The fact that Rabbi Hier has been asked to offer a prayer at the inauguration ceremony is further proof that President-elect Donald Trump will correct Barack Obama’s evil anti-Israel and anti-Jewish policies, which have poisoned relations between America and Israel to such a degree that Israel’s left and right wings are united in loathing Obama, Kerry, and their entire Iran-hugging administration.

Here at Seraphic Secret, we are counting the days until Obama’s foul regime lands on the ash heap of history with all the other Jew-hating empires.

Rabbi Hier will offer an original prayer and give benedictions to both President-elect Trump and incoming Vice President Mike Pence at the inauguration ceremony on January 20.

Comment Rules

Seraphic Secret is private property, that's right, it's an extension of our home, and as such, Karen and I have instituted two Seraphic Rules and we ask commentors to act respectfully.

  1. No profanity.
  2. No Israel bashing. We debate, we discuss, we are respectful. You know what Israel bashing is. The world is full of it. Seraphic Secret is one of the few places in the world that will not tolerate this form of anti-Semitism.

That's it. Break either of these rules and you will be banned.

    “counting the days” – It’s hard to believe it has finally come to this. I remember when the first four years seemed like decades away. Then, four more were to be endured.

    Donald Trump and Mike Pence will need great support and prayers. They’re tackling some issues ling overdue. If they accomplish only part of what they have spoken of, it will be a considerable turning away from the course we’ve been on for eight years.

    I’m glad that President-Elect Trump has not been hesitant to disagree with Obama and Kerry over Israel, as he has vowed to protect Israel from the U.N. and Iran.
