Israeli Government Meeting to mark International Holocaust Remembrance Day 2019


To mark International Holocaust Memorial Day, a special Cabinet Meeting of Israeli Government Ministers will be held on January 27th 2019, discussing trends in antisemitism worldwide as well as the current global state of Holocaust commemoration. The Chairman of the Directorate of Yad Vashem, Mr. Avner Shalev, will participate in this special meeting. NB the Knesset (Israeli Parliament) session typically held to mark International Holocaust Memorial Day will not be held this year, due to recent dissolution of the government in advance of upcoming elections.
