Statement of the American Zionist Movement on the Election of Isaac Herzog as President of the State of Israel

The American Zionist Movement (AZM) congratulates Isaac Herzog upon being elected today by the Knesset as the 11th President of the State of Israel, continuing his long and distinguished career serving Israel and the Jewish people.

Richard D. Heideman, President of the American Zionist Movement said: “AZM and our constituent organizations are proud to have worked so closely with Isaac Herzog as Chairman of the Executive of the Jewish Agency, one of the National Institutions of Israel. We are confident that Isaac Herzog will serve with distinction as President of the State of Israel and will continue to work so cooperatively with the American Zionist Movement and the global Jewish community.”

In recent remarks to the AZM National Zionism Conference, Mr. Herzog applauded AZM as an “organization that brings everyone together in a serious discussion about what Zionism is all about…the connection to the State of Israel… how to combat Antisemitism and make an impact.” President-elect Herzog quite appropriately stated “We have to instill the love of Israel, Ahavat Yisrael, and the notion of a nation-state of the Jewish people, one and only of its kind, and its great important for the Jewish people and the world at large.”

On behalf of the leadership and organizations of The American Zionist Movement, we wish Mazal Tov to President-Elect Isaac Herzog.
