EMET Congratulates Isaac Herzog on Becoming Israel’s 11th President

(Washington, D.C., June 3, 2021) EMET congratulates Isaac Herzog on becoming Israel’s 11th president. The president-elect won the secret-ballot election in the Knesset by the largest margin in Israeli history.

The father of Isaac Herzog, Haim Hertzog, was Israel’s 6th President and his grandfather, Yitzhak HaLevi Hertzog served as the Israeli Chief Rabbi.The President-elect currently serves as the chairman of the Jewish Agency. EMET wishes him continued success in uniting world Jewry and much prosperity during his presidency as he follows in his father’s footsteps.

Says EMET founder and president Sarah Stern, “Isaac Herzog is pre-eminently qualified to lead Israel as its 11th President. Mr. Herzog is a talented leader capable of uniting worldwide Jewry with the state of Israel and healing the fractures between them and among Israeli citizenry. He comes from an illustrious family and has been raised among many of the great leaders of the state of Israel. His views are not radical, but are solidly down the middle. The state of Israel needs someone to navigate many challenges right now. Mr. Herzog is the right person for the job and we at EMET want to congratulate him, and wish him much success on the road ahead.”
