Senior ultra-Orthodox leader pays historic visit to Israel Museum

The head of the Karlin-Stolin Hasidic dynasty received a behind-closed-doors tour of the Israel Museum last week, the first official visit there by a major ultra-Orthodox leader.

Rabbi Baruch Shochat is known for his openness to art and culture, and encourages his followers to take an interest in art and archaelogy. The guided tour of the Jerusalem museum, which lasted about three hours, gave the rabbi a look at the Judaica and ethnography wings, as well as the interiors of the historic synagogues that are now housed at the museum.
