Reception for Nir Barkat
Hadassah New England’s Reception for Nir Barkat, Mayor of Jerusalem
Hadassah New England held a reception in honor of Mr. Nir Barkat, Mayor of Jerusalem, who visited Boston for a private tour last week.
Mayor Barkat, a good friend to Hadassah, as Hadassah is the second largest employer in Jerusalem, briefed us on the most current issues facing Jerusalem and his vision for the future of this historic City.
Regarding the situation in Israel, Mr. Barkat said, “Israel leverages the pioneered research and development done in the country, to build up groundbreaking technology that on one hand enhances the well-being of its citizens, and of the world’s, in terms of medicine, communication, and education and on the other hand utilizes this state-of-the-art technology to better defend the Israeli population, while pin-pointing its enemies with minimum casualties to their civilians.”
