“The connection between the State of Israel and global Jewry is of existential strategic importance. We will work together to increase Aliyah and absorption, build stronger connections with world Jewry, reinforce mutual commitment and love of humankind, and strengthen the weaker sections of Israeli society,” said Doron, The Jewish Agency for Israel’s new Chairman of the Executive.
