"I use two tools and Russia is an important country in the region."The President of Israel comments on the issue of the Jewish Agency in Moscow

After meeting Prime Minister Yair Lapid in a conversation about trying to resolve the Jewish Agency crisis in Russia, Israeli President Isaac Herzog said the issue was “very dear to his heart.”

“Of course, the topic that has occupied us in recent days – the activities of the Jewish Agency in Russia – is very dear to my heart,” said Isaac Herzog.

The Duke added: “I use two tools… first… there are things for which silence is great and I think the less talking the better and that will properly solve the whole problem… second. .. I work in full cooperation with the Prime Minister with full confidence. “We work for the State of Israel and for the Jewish people, we work together, and where I can help, I will help.”

And he added: “Russia is an important country in the whole region and in general, and there can be different scenarios and ten different reasons why and how the accident happened.”

And Herzog continued: “I prefer not to get into the analysis. Sometimes we see things that we don’t always understand, and things that we see from here, we don’t see from there… Let’s let the process finish… talk, and the more we do, the better.”

Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid instructed Foreign Ministry officials to prepare a “package of measures” in case Russia decides to close the Sakhnot Jewish Migration Agency.

According to Israeli TV channel 13, Lapid’s order came at a meeting with three Foreign Ministry employees, during which they discussed the situation around the work of the Jewish Agency in Russia.

It should be noted that earlier judicial sources in Moscow reported that the judicial authorities would consider the appeal of the Moscow administration regarding the liquidation of the independent non-profit Jewish organization Sakhnot.

The court received an administrative claim from the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Justice of Russia on the liquidation and exclusion from the Unified State Register of Legal Entities of independent non-profit organizations supporting relations with Jews in the Diaspora, the Jewish Agency (Sakhnot), where the judge scheduled a hearing on this claim for July 28 of this year.
