President Rivlin commemorates day marking UN partition resolution

President Reuven Rivlin today commemorated the 29th of November, marking the day in 1947 when the UN General Assembly voted 33 to 13, with 10 abstentions and 1 absent, in favor of a resolution that adopted the plan for the partition of Palestine.
Rivlin wrote: “November 29th is a time that always fills me with a sense of solemnity, no matter how many years have passed since that fateful and historic night.
“This year, too, in the midst of tropical epidemics, I still feel the same tremor in the face of the great wonder called the State of Israel. And maybe these days, even more than ever.”
