After visiting terror victims at Hadassah Ein Kerem this on Saturday evening, October 18, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat held a joint press conference inside the hospital. Mayor de Blasio was in Israel to address an international conference of mayors about anti-Semitism.

Press Conference at Hadassah Ein Kerem: New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat and Hadassah Hospital Interim Director General Tamar Peretz discuss the “spirit of solidarity” and the “common destiny” between the citizens of Jerusalem and New York City

Mayor de Blasio talked about the “spirit of solidarity” and the “common destiny” between the citizens of Jerusalem and New York City. He said, “Let me thank Hadassah Hospital; the stories I have heard, in the midst of this pain, are inspiring and, somehow, life-affirming.”

Mayor Barkat talked about patients they had met: Maria, a Christian woman who was a foster mother to 20 Arab children through the years, who was stabbed in the chest; Pesach, an elderly man who suffered a severe knife attack while waiting for a bus, among others
