The finance minister, a loyal advocate of Israel Bonds who earlier this year declared, “The unbeatable combination of Israel Bonds and Israeli ingenuity has helped make so much possible,” was warmly welcomed by Bonds President & CEO Israel Maimon. Maimon praised the finance minister’s policies, observing that as a result, “Israel’s strong economy is appreciated all over the world.” Kahlon responded by underscoring his efforts to lower debt and close the social gap. The finance minister emphasized, “We need Israel Bonds,” which he called “Israel’s connection to the Jewish people and the global economy.” He concluded, “Thank you for the job you do, and will continue to do, for the State of Israel.”
Finance Ministry Director General Shai Babad, also at the meeting, added, “The fact that you get Jews from all over the world to commit to Israel is the major story. This is the virtue of Israel Bonds.”
Prior to the meeting, Israel Maimon introduced Finance Minister Kahlon to Bonds staff on every level. He told the finance minister, “Our staff works from the heart, striving every day to strengthen Israel’s economy.”
Later, the finance minister tweeted, "Met yesterday with the board of @IsraelBondsNews in NYC. Keep doing the great work you all do for Israel!"
