Dear visitors of our website,
The Embassy of Israel in Manila is a gateway and a bridge
of friendship between our Nations and Peoples.
Our main objective is to explore, identify and cultivate
the bilateral relationship to the benefit of our two Nations.
The foundations of our relations were forged during the
darkest days in History on the eve of World War II when Philippine President
Manuel Quezon extended a welcoming hand to many Jewish refugees who desperately
sought shelter from the Holocaust.
His nobel actions earned him and the Filipino People a
place in our hearts forever. More over, Israel will never forget the vote of the Philippines in the UN, on
the 29th of November 1947, on a resolution that led to the establishment of the
State of Israel.
''A friend in need is a friend indeed'' and Israel is showing
it in so many ways, from humanitarian assistance to development cooperation
that saw thousands of Filipinos in training programs in Israel. We welcome you
to share and enjoy our potential to support Philippines development.
We are on a mission of friendship. Our doors are open and
our hearts are open to any initiative that will contribute to our relations.
Welcome to the Embassy of Israel.
Ambassador Effie Ben Matityau
