Israel’s most impressive accomplishment is the reunification of Jerusalem, President Reuven Rivlin said on Sunday in a meeting with members of an Israel Bonds delegation.
Rivlin, a seventh-generation Jerusalemite, who seldom misses an opportunity to tell his guests that he is the son of the son of the son of a native Jerusalemite going back seven generations and that his grandchildren are ninth-generation Jerusalemites, is a staunch advocate for Israel’s capital.
When interviewed, his customary greeting and farewell is: “Shalom, from Jerusalem.”
On Sunday, the Gregorian calendar date of the 68th anniversary of Israel’s Declaration of Independence, Rivlin hosted a 140-member Israel Bonds delegation – the largest ever to come to Israel – which was visiting the country as part of the organization’s 65th anniversary celebrations.
