SPRINGFIELD—After a 12+ hour flight from Tel Aviv to Boston, would Israeli businessmen, entrepreneurs and high-tech engineers be willing to make an additional hour and a half trip here?
Senator Eric Lesser of Longmeadow is working to capitalize on direct flights from Boston to Tel Aviv that have been inservice since June, with help from Consul General of Israel to New England, Yehuda Yaakov.
Yehuda Yaakov, Consul General of Israel to New England, visits the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, the first stop on a day-long tour of the area.
Yehuda Yaakov has served as Consul General of Israel to New England since February 2014.
