Meir-Soloveichik-247x3001-150x150Rabbi Dr. Meir Soloveichik, director of Yeshiva University’s Zahava and Moshael Straus Center for Torah and Western Thought, delivered the invocation at the opening session of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida on Tuesday, August 28.

Rabbi Soloveichik said, “It is extraordinary privilege to deliver an invocation at a cherished ritual of American democracy. The fact that I have been teaching courses about the connection between Jewish ideas and American democracy makes this moment all the more meaningful for me.”
