On behalf of the Jewish communities across the former Soviet Union and Russian Jewry as a whole, we wish to extend our warmest congratulations to our dear friend and devoted partner Mr. Yitzhak Herzog, chairman of the Jewish Agency of Israel, upon being elected to serve as the 11th President of the State of Israel. We are absolutely certain that, with your wisdom and personality, you will bring great pride and honor to the Jewish state, strengthen its identity and enhance genuine unity amongst its residents.
We would like to extend additional blessings to the First Lady, Mrs. Michal Herzog, a woman of valor, who has contributed greatly to the welfare of our people in so many aspects.
Your presence in the President’s residence will surely bring much blessing to our nation.
With warm wishes and deepest respect,
The Federation of Jewish Communities of the CIS
