"I called to send my regards and express my worry for the security of the large Jewish community which you lead," Rivlin said to Davidovich, who was hospitalized following the attack in his home, via phone call.
"The State of Israel will do everything necessary to protect every Jew, wherever they choose to live," Rivlin said. "We will implement any means in order to banish every threat. We will not allow those who wish ill upon us to pursue us."
"We trust you to be strong and return to your many duties as the rabbi of your congregation," the president said, "and we are sending you a brave embrace from the nation of Israel in its entirety."
