Head Shliach to Berlin Rabbi Yehuda Teichtal welcomed Israel’s new ambassador to Germany, Mr. Ron Prosor, at the Israeli embassy in Berlin on Friday afternoon.
Rabbi Teichtal presented the new ambassador with two freshly baked homemade Challah for Shabbos, and declared it “An honor and pleasure to welcome the new ambassador to Germany Mr. Ron Prosor.”
“Ambassador Prosor is an Illustrious personality that has done great things for Israel and the Jewish people. May God bless him with great success and all his endeavors.”
Prosor said he considered the appointment as a “closing of a circle,” as his father, Uri, was born in Berlin, not far from where the Chabad Center is located.
Prosor was ambassador to the UN from 2011-2015, and was ambassador to the UK before that. He also served as director-general of the Foreign Ministry and diplomatic adviser in the Israel Embassy in Washington.
Proser has experience in Germany as he was the spokesman of the Israeli Embassy in Bonn, the capital of West Germany, when the Berlin Wall fell, and was instrumental in building Israel’s relations with the states that had been part of East Germany.
