Gilad Erdan, Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations spent a whirlwind 48 hours in Nashville last month. In his first ever visit to Music City Erdan met with Tennessee governor Bill Lee, Nashville mayor John Cooper, as well as with Jewish community leaders. He spoke publicly at a dinner that included local business leaders, elected officials, and leaders in the greater Nashville community. The visit was sponsored by Delek Logistics Partners and hosted by The Jewish Federation of Greater Nashville.
During the dinner, attended by close to 200 people, Erdan spoke of Israel’s long and close relationship with the United States. He said his priority for the UN is to push back against those who work to demonize Israel. He also shared highlights of Israel’s achievements in the technology sector and pointed to developments in the areas of water scarcity, renewable energy, and global security.
