Betar Illit Mayor Rabbi Meir Rubinstein returned from a successful tour in the U.S. this week, where he campaigned for the advancement of important projects in the city. Through his journey he met with Admorim and public figures, businessmen, politicians and media figures to encourage their assistance in the establishment of public, educational and religious centers, as well as the development of additional employment sources for the benefit of the residents of Beitar Ilit, within the framework of the "Beitar Family" Chessed organization which he has founded.

During his trip he was designated to meet with several important Rabbis and Admorim to receive their blessings, among them the Vizhnitz Monsey Rebbe shlit"a. The mayor expressed his strong desire and that of the city residents to establish more and more Batei Midrash and Yeshivas, to further strengthen the city of Torah and Chassidus. Additionally, the mayor met with the Rav of the Zlatipoli community in New York, who is currently building both a spacious shul on Rav Shach Street in the new Tamar neighborhood, as well as a brand new mikvah in the area.
Rabbi Rubinstein began his trip in Manhattan, where he met with New York City Comptroller Mr. Thomas DiNapoli with the aim of advancing the plans for the erection of an Urban Emergency Ward in Beitar Ilit. Mr. DiNapoli was of great assistance due to his vast experience and offered advice for financial improvement and the advancement of employment and occupation. A similar meeting was conducted the next day with the Accountant General of Yew York and his deputies, Ari Hoffenung and Simcha Felder and his assistant, Pinchas Hikind. Together, they discussed sector-based distribution of recourses and contribution to the Urban Emergency Ward. Felder has received much praise for his recent involvement in the Haredi community.
While promoting employment for local women, Rabbi Rubinstein met with well-known entrepreneurs R' Moshe Wolfson and R' Avi Shran. The Mayor described his plans for developing employment centers in the city. The businessmen enthusiastically requested to visit the city in order to further explore the great potential in such centers. The Mayor further met with the founder and owner of the "City Book" high-tech company, R' Itche Rozenbaum. Rozenbaum established his "City Book" company in the Arava neighborhood in Beitar Ilit, which employs dozens of local women. He is very keen on expanding his company and to double the amount of working women to about 100.
