In a brief message sent to Benjamin Nathanahu congratulating him on the victory in Israel's elections, the Board of Directors of the Jewish Community of Oporto invited him to visit the "Yonathan Room" at the Jewish Museum of the city.
"When you're traveling to Europe, please make an effort to visit the "Yonathan Room" at the Jewish Museum of Oporto, where all the strength of Am and Eretz Israel is deposited", wrote Gabriel Senderowicz, the President of the Jewish Community of Oporto.
In partnership with B'nai B'rith International, the Jewish Museum of Oporto dedicated a room to the Thunderbolt Operation. The initiative aims to bring young Jews closer to Israel.
Senderowicz remembers that "Lieutenant Colonel Yonathan Netanyahu teaches us that the Jews must never leave their security in anyone else’s hands but their own. A new pogrom, a new Inquisition or a new Holocaust are impossible as long as the state of Israel exists."
"The Jewish Community of Oporto will continue to cooperate with Eretz Israel, with Keren Hayesod and with religious, cultural, educational and social institutions in the small-big state, regardless of whether or not there is reciprocity", he adds.
