Last week, Gov. Cuomo and the state’s legislative leaders traveled to Israel on a “unity visit” to show the state’s support in light of recent attacks on that nation.  The Governor was joined on the trip by Senate Majority Co-Leaders Dean Skelos (R-Nassau County) and Jeff Klein (D-Bronx), and Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver (D-Manhattan).

Gov. Cuomo said:

“Friends stand together in times of crisis, and I am proud to lead this bipartisan delegation to Israel to reaffirm our friendship and support. New York has always had a special relationship with Israel. As Hamas and other terrorist organizations continue to threaten Israel, now is the time to deliver that message of solidarity in person.”
