Governor of Texas Greg Abbott was honored at the Friends of Zion Heritage Center (FOZHC) in Yerushalayim with its highest honor – the ‘Friends of Zion Award’ – during his visit to Jerusalem.

At the ceremony, Gov. Abbott said “There are strong relations between Texas and Israel. Anybody who is an enemy of Israel is an enemy of Texas. Whenever anybody threatens Israel, we come side by side with Israel to support Israel in any way we can.”

In thanking of Gov. Abbott’s service in building a strong Israel-US relationship, Dr. Evans said “I appreciate and admire the work of my governor, Greg Abbott. His dedication to anti-BDS laws and building stronger economic ties shows that there are those in the world that are willing and proud to support the State of Israel. Governor Abbot is a true Friend of Zion and espouses the unbreakable bond between the State of Israel and the United States of America.”
