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.
