Raised in the Catholic faith since childhood, the new Argentine President Javier Miley converts to Judaism and intends to make Argentina Israel's main ally. Arriving on a visit to the USA, He, dressed in black clothes and with a kippah on his head, first visited the grave of Rabbi Menachem Mendel-Schneerson, revered by Jews all over the world., better known as the "Lubavitch Rebbe".

Before leaving for America, Miley took part in a Jewish ceremony and was blessed by the local rabbi.
