MK Dov Lipman (Yesh Atid) became the first American-born lawmaker sworn in to the Knesset in nearly 30 years on Tuesday.

Lipman, a rabbi and educator who hales from Maryland and led protests against haredi extremism in Bet Shemesh, brought his wife and four children to the celebratory first meeting of the 19th Knesset, as well as his mother, who made Aliyah specially to vote Yesh Atid.

Lipman was required to give up his American citizenship in order to become an MK.
