Machon Meir is a great learning centre. It is about time that these Rabbi's have decided to give some time to leading our people though the political system. These Rabbi's and their students have always been on the front lines for the Jewish nation and do not ask for any hand outs like those on the 'left'. As a former student of Machon Meir, I say thanks for my time learning under Rav Dov Begun.
