A Shabbat Zachor to Remember: Netanyahu’s Advisers in Ottawa

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s senior advisers had a unique Shabbat last week during their last in Canada’s capital, Ottawa, where Netanyahu met with Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Arutz Sheva’s Hezki Ezra, who covered Netanyahu’s visit to North America, reported all the details.

The advisers, including National Security Adviser Major General (res.) Yaakov Amidror, bureau chief Gil Sheffer, spokesman Mark Regev and Cabinet Secretary Zvi Hauser, arrived at their hotel in Ottawa on Friday and realized that Shabbat was “Shabbat Zachor.”

Shabbat Zachor is the Sabbath which falls before the holiday of Purim. On this Shabbat, the Jewish people are commanded to turn to the book of Deuteronomy (25: 17-19) for the last part of the Torah reading, called Parshat Zachor, the Portion of Remembrance, although the rest of the Shabbat Torah portion is from the book of Exodus.
