Cuomo Holds First Public Meeting of His Cabinet in Two-and-a Half Years

Gov. Cuomo visited Israel Sunday and launched a New York-Israel economic development commission to encourage Israeli investment here and to cement ties between the two governments' law enforcement agencies.

Cuomo, governor of a state with the largest Jewish population outside of Israel, said that NY has "put together a special unit of the State Police" to deal with the issue, and has "reacted aggressively with extraordinary measures, more aggressively than any other state in the nation" to the attacks. "We have made it clear that there will be no tolerance for these acts of anti-Semitism".

"To those people who want to destroy our relationship with the Jewish community, I say we're going to make our relationship stronger and we're going to fortify the bonds", Cuomo said Saturday.

Governor Cuomo will tour Yad Vashem with Dr. Robert Rozett, Director of the Libraries. Its aim is to reinforce the historic relationship between NY and Israel and is part of the state's effort to combat anti-Semitism.

Rivlin added: "The same appreciation goes to President Trump, who condemned the recent attacks".

Israel refers to it as the security barrier and insists it is crucial for keeping out would-be attackers. Set to open its doors to guests on March 20, the hotel team wants Israelis to see the wall up close.

"In the time of the Holocaust, few places were safe for Jews".

Addressing Cuomo, Rivlin said "your arrival to Israel at this time is an extremely important signal that the United States people and government will not let anti-Semitism win". "We can never, ever, let that change".

Cuomo was scheduled to meet Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu later on Sunday.

Governor Cuomo will host a New York State-Israel Economic Development working lunch with Nir Barkat, the Mayor of Jerusalem, key Israeli business leaders and Empire State Development President, CEO and Commissioner Howard Zemsky.
