Israeli President Reuven Rivlin landed at Newark International Airport on Sunday morning on a farewell visit to the US at the invitation of US President Joe Biden.

Rivlin’s seven-year term ends in two weeks.

The president was met at the airport by Israel’s Ambassador to the US and UN Gilad Erdan. The two will meet with senior Jewish community leaders in Manhattan on Sunday evening.

Rivlin will travel to Washington on Monday and will meet with Biden in the Oval Office as well as with Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other congressional leaders from both parties.

On Tuesday Rivlin is scheduled to meet with United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and several foreign ambassadors.

Rivlin met with Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and Foreign Minister Yair Lapid in the past week to coordinate his messages to US and UN leaders with the new government.

  1. How is Rivlin going to manage fasting today שבעה עשר ב”תמוז with his jet-lag & busy schedule?
    Why didn’t he have the presence of mind to undertake this trip a day or 2 later after שבעה עשר ב”תמוז?

  2. Even though this story is from your “Jerusalem Desk”, since this is an American website, it would be more appropriate to title this story “Israeli President…” rather than “President”.
