President Reuven Rivlin welcomed a delegation of 140 Israel Bonds representatives from around the world, on Sunday, led by the organization’s president Izzy Tapuchi.
The president congratulated the delegation on the 65th anniversary of Israel Bonds.
“I have witnessed the miracle of seeing the ‘desert bloom’, and the ‘hi-tech boom,’ Rivlin said, noting “we could not have achieved all this without your support.
“Israel Bonds is not just a way to show support for Israel, it is a way to show faith in Israel; faith in our growth, faith in our development, and faith in our future.”
Rivlin spoke about the socio-economic challenges Israel faces against the background of changes in Israeli society and gaps between the different communities.
“The President’s Office is proud to be involved in a number of projects bridging the gaps,” he said, “in schools and on the sports field, in the classroom and in the workplace.”
