Israeli Ambassador hosts Hanukkah reception

Happy Hanukkah!

    ​Israeli Ambassador to Serbia Yossef Levy hosted at his residence a reception to mark the Jewish holiday Hanukkah. Serbia's Deputy Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic and Parliament Speaker Nebojsa Stefanovic were among the guests.

    The Serbian government always has great pleasure in working with Israel and hopes the cooperation will improve in the future, Vucic stated on behalf of the government.

    There is great friendship between the two nations, he stated, wishing the Jewish people a happy Hanuakkah.

    Levy noted he was glad he was celebrating Hanukkah in Serbia, since the country was so close to his heart, and explained that Hanukkah is one of the few joyous holidays in the Jewish calendar, a family holiday that dates back 2,200 years and celebrates light and hope's victory over despair.

    It is a Jewish holiday, but also an international one and it shows that small nations can survive too if they wish it, that they can win and that nothing can stop them in pursuing that victory, he stated.​​
