U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman in a holiday visit at the Church of the Sepulcher in Jerusalem

U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman praised Israel’s unity of faiths this week following his visit to one of the holiest sites in Christianity, the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, in the Old City of Jerusalem.


The ambassador visited the Christian house of worship ahead of the Roman Catholic holiday of Good Friday, which is immediately followed by Easter Sunday.

Earlier this week, Friedman posted a joyous “Passover Message” video of his visit with his wife Tammy to the matzoh-baking factory in Kfar Chabad.

“This year, because of the great efforts of our administration and particularly our president, when we say, ‘L’Shanah ha’ba’a b’Yerushalayim’ it has special and unique meaning. ‘Hag sameach’ to all of you,” Friedman concluded.
