On a recent trip to Israel, Philip Krawitz paid a courtesy call on the new Israeli President, Isaac (Bougie) Herzog.
President Herzog has strong links with South Africa. His mother was educated at the University of the Witwatersrand, and his late uncle, Abba Eban, had deep Cape Town roots.
“President Herzog was extremely well-informed on the position of South African Jews, and expressed his concern for our wellbeing. He asked me to extend his warm greetings to our community,” said Philip.
