Greetings from H. E. Ambassador Aivars Groza to the Latvian Cultural Association in Israel:

“Hello, compatriots and friends of Latvia in Israel!

On behalf of myself and the Embassy, ​​I would like to congratulate you on a truly historic event - the establishment of the Latvian Cultural Association in Israel.

The long cherished dream has come true!

The Latvian Cultural Society will promote not only the connection of compatriots living in the State of Israel and deeper co-operation with Latvia, but also more active co-operation between our countries in all areas. It is especially important to preserve and promote the attraction of the new generation diaspora to Latvia, to maintain our language, traditions and preserve cultural roots.

I certify that you can always count on the support of the Latvian Embassy so that you can carry out your mission in Israel. Good luck to you and the supporters of the association in your future work.

With greetings,

Aivars Groza,
