MKs to host foreign journalists, diplomats for Shabbat dinner in joint initiative with The Israel Project

(Launch of ”I Understand” project)

The Knesset and The Israel Project launched on Tuesday a project to deepen the connection and dialogue between MKs and foreign diplomats and journalists who are stationed in Israel.

In the framework of the ”I Understand” project, Knesset members will host foreign journalists or ambassadors for Friday night dinner at their homes in order to strengthen the dialogue between them and expose the guests to a Jewish-Israeli tradition.

The meetings will be held in an informal atmosphere, and each ambassador will bring a symbolic gift representing his country and culture.

Knesset Speaker Yuli-Yoel Edelstein launched the project in his office together with the ambassadors of Australia, Denmark and Lithuania.
