New York mayor welcomes Israel’s new consul-general, vows to ‘redouble efforts to fight antisemitism’

New York Mayor Eric Adams welcomes Israel’s new consul-general Ofir Akunis to the US city, in a meeting set “to redouble our efforts to fight antisemitism at home and abroad.”

“New York City is so proud to be home to the largest Jewish population anywhere outside of Israel, and we take our work in protecting that community seriously,” Adams writes in a post on X, formerly Twitter.

Akunis was appointed as the next consul-general in New York in March.
