The NY State Senate and Assembly passed resolutions Tuesday honoring Israeli independence, presenting them to Consul-General Dani Dayan, who attended the proceedings in Albany. The resolution states that it is “congratulating the State of Israel upon the occasion of the 69th anniversary of its independence and reaffirming the bonds of friendship and cooperation between the State of New York and Israel.”

The resolutions said that the State of Israel was established “in fulfillment of the eternal desire of the Jewish people to return to the land of the historic Kingdom of Israel established 3,000 years ago and to the holy city of Jerusalem.” Israeli-born Assemblywoman Nily Rozic, a Democrat who represents part of Queens, along with Assemblyman Charles Lavine, a Democrat from Long Island, and State Senator Todd Kaminsky, also a Democrat from Long Island, sponsored the resolutions and hosted an Israeli Independence Day event.
