On 3 September 2020, His Excellency Mr Sagi Karni, Ambassador of Israel to Singapore paid a courtesy visit to Bishop Dr Chong Chin Chung at The Methodist Church in Singapore’s headquarters. He was received by Bishop Dr Chong and given a short tour of our Heritage Gallery.
A congenial and wide-ranging discussion followed, and the olive branches of friendship were exchanged along with gifts; Mr Karni presented Bishop Chong with a book commemorating 50 years of Israeli-Singapore ties, whilst we presented him with a set of classical Chinese calligraphy of the Shema, taken from Deuteronomy 6:4-5 and a model of Wesley Methodist Church.
It was a great privilege to have received His Excellency and we look forward to carrying on the conversation and strengthening our ties further.
