The new Israeli Ambassador to Romania, H.E. Mr. David Saranga, arrives in Bucharest tomorrow, January 10. David Saranga started his diplomat career in Romania, 20 years ago, where he learnt the Romanian language very well. Saranga is replacing Tamar Samash, whose mandate is expiring and who is going to retire.
The Israeli Foreign Ministry has released a presentation video where the new head of the Israeli diplomatic mission to Romania is detailing his career, in Romanian. The video is available on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube (IsraelMFA) and Instagram – @IsraelinRomania.
“Romania has an important place in my heart. I return to Romania after 20 years, a country that I have never been apart of and which has had a continuous and upward relation since the establishment of the Jewish state. The memories, friends and the Romanian culture have accompanied me until nowadays. 400,000 Romanian-born Jews are living in Israel, who are perfectly assimilated in all fields. The Romanian community represents an important bond between the two states,” says the new ambassador.
According to a press release of the Israeli Embassy to Romania, after he lands in Bucharest, ambassador David Saranga will go directly to the Memorial of the Holocaust Victims to lay a wreath in remembrance of those 400,000 Jews who died during the Holocaust in Romania and to say Kaddish, a prayer to commemorate them.
