President Reuven Rivlin hosted a delegation of Republican members of the United States Congress, led by House Majority Leader, Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) on Wednesday, in a meeting arranged by the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).


President Rivlin began by welcoming the delegation to Israel.


“We stand together in a partnership, established on the strong foundations of common values, and a shared vision, deeply rooted in democracy, the values of liberalism, and human rights for each and every citizen,” he began. “These are not just slogans. The shared values of democracy and equality play a vital part in daily life.”


“For us in Israel we strive, each and every day, to achieve our goal of a state – where the historic traditions and values of the Jewish people, and the individual rights of each and every citizen of this land, are protected and safeguarded,” he added.
