2016-10-27

"I'm proud, I'm pleased to meet you, with emotion.”

As a result of the Holy See and Israel establishing diplomatic relations in 1993, the new ambassador of Israel, Oren David, was able to present his credentials to the pope. 

The new ambassador has over 30 years experience in the diplomatic field and speaks six languages. He visited the pope with members of his family and some employees of the embassy.

As a gift, he gave Pope Francis a replica of a menorah found among the remains of a synagogue destroyed in the sixth century.

"It is a piece of art from the Museum of Israel.”

The pope returned the gesture with a copy of his encyclical "Laudato si'," also greatly appreciated by the ambassador.

"Thank you. Thank you so much. Thank you so much. I appreciate it.”

Before concluding the meeting, Pope Francis also gave gifts to all the new ambassador's relatives who were present.
