“We commend Israeli President Isaac Herzog for his historic address to a joint meeting of the United States Congress and extend our utmost appreciation for his poignant and insightful speech, which highlighted the sacred bond between the U.S. and Israel rooted in shared democratic values.”

“President Herzog’s address serves as a testament to the unwavering bond between the Israeli and American peoples.”
