Rabbi Zalman and wife Raizy will be Cheney’s guests at State of the Union

JACKSON HOLE, WYO – Congresswoman Liz Cheney announced today that she has invited Rabbi Zalman Mendelsohn of the Chabad Lubavitch of Wyoming in Jackson to be her guest for tonight’s State of the Union address delivered by President Donald Trump.

“I’m thrilled that Rabbi Zalman will be joining me for the President’s speech this evening,” Congresswoman Cheney said. “I am blessed to call Rabbi Zalman and his wife Raizy my friends and humbled by their service to people all across our state. At a time when Jewish Americans are facing increased threats of anti-Semitism and the importance of our relationship with Israel could not be more vital, I’m proud that he will be in the chamber with me to hear this historic address by President Trump.”

Rabbi Mendelsohn received a Bachelor’s Degree in Talmudic Study in 2002 from the Rabbinical College of America, and he taught at the Rabbinical College of America from 2004 to 2006. He and his wife moved to Wyoming to establish the Chabad Center.

He has been previously recognized for his work in growing the Jewish community in Wyoming and created a website to allow Jews in the state to connect with each another.
