Electronic Newsletterl no' 8

Dear Friends,

As we celebrate the Holiday of Passover which signifies for us a celebration of freedom and how God protects us against enemies and tremendous odds, we do not forget that we have to actively work and make an effort to advance ourselves in times of Peace and tranquility as well as always be prepared for the emergency, especially this year when we celebrate our 60th Independence day.

I wish all our Jewish friends a Happy Passover and Season's and Holiday greetings to everyone.


Zohar Oved,

Dear Friends and Supporters of Tiberias,

This new issue of our newsletter will once again reflect the efforts we are making to realize the tremendous potential of our beloved town. History, present and future are reflected here, just as the blossoming of spring (the season of the New Year in biblical times) mingles with the historical and religious events of the Exodus from Egypt.

For us at the Foreign Affairs office it is especially a busy period as we prepare to host many delegations arriving as of the end of April from Worms in Germany, Montpellier France, Mayor Ginesta from St. Raphael France, Passau Germany, Feodosia Ukraine, Naples Florida USA, a business delegation from Russia and more.

Beside the delegations that are arriving at an especially significant time when we celebrate 60 years of independence for Israel and 60 years of renewing the Jewish rule in Tiberias, we continue to work on advancing our town forward with development, projects, construction and planning. Tiberias, during the battles in 1948, was the first city to fall back in the hands of the Jewish warriors. On the anniversary marking this day victorious day, families of those who lost their lives in this battle will be honored in a special ceremony in Tiberias.

I hope you enjoy reading this issue. We are always pleased to receive comments and suggestions.

Passover & Season's greetings to everyone.


Eitan Oved, Councilman
In charge of Foreign Affairs and Security
