With the Jewish festival of Chanukah to begin on Sunday evening (6th December), President Rivlin issued the following message to Jewish communities around the world.

 

A video of the greeting is available here - https://youtu.be/WKhtyRL5z4g

 

 

“My dear brothers and sisters in Israel, and around the world. At Chanukah we stand around the lights, watch as they glow, and sing together Maoz Tzur, a song that tells about the many challenges that have risen against the Jewish people in the past. We celebrate the survival of our people and our faith against all the odds. We celebrate the freedom that was won in those days, and that we enjoy today with Israel as the national home of the Jewish people. It is no coincidence that the symbol of the Government of Israel is the Menorah, the symbol of Jewish independence, which lights our path. In each generation we must find that path; to reinforce the bonds between Jews across the world, to share together, to hold high the torch of freedom. To bring light where there is darkness. Just as it was for the heroic Maccabim, the light of the Menorah inspires us all.

 

“Today, hatred, incitement, and terrorism threaten the whole world. In the face of these threats we need to be firm and strong like a rock – like Maoz Tzur – in our beliefs in freedom, justice, in the values of our tradition and of democracy. So this year as we gather with our families and communities and look at the wonderful lights it is my prayer that we will be reminded of the bonds that we all share, and the important role we all have of being a light unto the nations.

 

“Our thoughts at this time are of course with those who will be celebrating with a heavy heart; the injured and the families who have lost loved ones in the wave of terror that has struck in Israel, and around the world. To them especially, and to all the Jewish people, I wish a very happy Chanukah. Shalom from Jerusalem.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

President Rivlin addresses 5,000 Christian visitors to Jerusalem at Tabernacles Feast

 

President Reuven Rivlin this evening (Tuesday) addressed the 36th Annual Tabernacles Festival of the International Christian Embassy in Jerusalem, attended by 5,000 Christian visitors to Jerusalem from 85 countries, among them around 50 ministers and members of parliaments, from around the world, who are members of the International Israel Allies Caucus Foundation.

 

President Rivlin welcomed the visitors to Jerusalem, and stressed the importance of the Jewish people’s return to Zion, both in ancient and modern times, as an inspiration to all peoples, "What an inspiration," he said, "was the return from exile in Babylon for the Jewish pioneers of the 19th century - and indeed for the 17th century pioneers fleeing European persecution, seeking freedom in the New World, and eventually founding ‘One nation, under God, with liberty and justice for all’.”

 

The President told the attendees of his own family's arrival in Jerusalem, over 200 years ago. He thanked the visitors for their support, and for coming from around the world, and said, "Thank you for standing with us."
