Outgoing Jewish Agency chairman Isaac Herzog bids farewell to the organization two days before he is set to be sworn in as Israel’s next president.

“I promise a true partnership with you that is entirely about serving the Jewish people,” he says, “to take care of their needs and preserve their unity and future. We are a small nation of 14.5 million Jews among 7 billion people in the world.”
