Rabbi Dov Lipman’s rise in politics, culminating in his surprise election to the Knesset in 2013, was as stunning as it was unexpected. The first American-born MK in almost thirty years, Rabbi Lipman was present for more votes than any other Knesset member during his tenure. How and why did he make the transition from yeshiva student and Torah teacher to activist and politician? What was it like to serve in the Knesset, especially when no one anticipated his election? What does he think of his achievements, and is he frustrated with some of the rollbacks of those achievements by the current government? And does he plan on running for the Knesset again? Scott Kahn spoke to Rabbi Lipman about these questions and much more in the latest episode of the Scott Kahnversation.
