U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, Deputy Ambassador Aryeh Lightstone and a delegation of White House faith leaders joined the Latino Coalition for Israel at the Aish HaTorah Dan Family World Center for a celebration of the embassy move to Jerusalem.
“A weekend in Jerusalem has the Muslims praying on Friday, the Jews on Saturday, and the Christians on Sunday. People of all faiths come here to worship at the Western Wall and are all welcomed peacefully,” said Rabbi Steven Burg, CEO of Aish HaTorah.
Ambassador Friedman said, “Today is a very special day for me as it marks the one year anniversary of my role as ambassador, and I promised that by the end of the first year, the U.S. embassy would be in Jerusalem. We made it remarkably close.”
