Israeli activist Rabbi Yehuda Glick, recently released from the hospital after an assassination attempt, was honored on Wednesday with a Human Rights Award by the Im Tirtzu organization at the second Zionist Conference.

Glick is a known Temple Mount activist, fighting for equal rights at the sacred site. Glick founded and heads the LIBA Initiative for Jewish Freedom on the Temple Mount.

After being honored with the award, Glick revived a thunderous applaud. “The applause is not for me, it’s for the almighty G-d,” Glick said in response. “This is the first time I leave home for something other than more hospital treatments.”

“I want to thank you for your support at a time like this,” he added.

Glick was was shot four times at point-blank range by 32-year-old Islamic Jihad member Moataz Hejazi after delivering a lecture at the Menachem Begin Heritage Center on October 29. The attacker was killed in a police shootout at his East Jerusalem home several hours later.
