The new United States ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, has just arrived in Israel today. As his first order of business, the U.S. representative came to Jerusalem to pray at the Kotel (Western Wall). Despite any attempts by detractors to create a rift between Israel and her well-established ally, the U.S., Ambassador Friedman made a point of demonstrating with actions and not just words. We thank and welcome the new ambassador to his post and look forward to a genuine and productive relationship!

U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman arrived late Monday afternoon to begin his tour of duty in the Jewish State, and headed directly to the Western Wall in Jerusalem to pray before doing anything else.
Friedman officially takes up his position as America’s representative to the Holy Land on Tuesday. It is believed that he will work from a U.S.-owned building in Jerusalem most of the time, although the exact details of where and how the ambassador will carry out his duties have not been worked out.
