New York City Mayor Eric Adams is set to embark on his inaugural international trip next week with a visit to Israel. This journey marks Adams’ first voyage outside the borders of the United States since his election as Mayor last year.

The upcoming visit, as reported by the Forward, is being sponsored by the UJA-Federation of New York in collaboration with the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York. The Mayor’s office has articulated that the trip’s purpose is to gain insights into Israeli technological advancements and engage in discussions regarding collaborative efforts to counteract the rise of antisemitism.

Over the course of three days, Mayor Adams will participate in meetings with Israeli leaders from both the political and business spheres in the cities of Yerushalayim and Tel Aviv. While New York City Hall has not disclosed a comprehensive itinerary, certain reports suggest that the Mayor is expected to hold discussions with Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu.

In the previous month, Mayor Adams held a meeting with Israeli President Isaac Herzog while in New York. Following this interaction, he expressed, “President Herzog is a steadfast friend of our city, and as we celebrate Israel’s 75th anniversary this year, I want to be clear that New York City and Israel share an unbreakable bond. I thank the president for meeting with me and NYPD Commissioner Caban today.” He added, “I am proud to be the Mayor of the city with the largest Jewish population outside of Israel, but we are also not blind to the fact that many of the verbal attacks being thrown at all of our diverse communities are coming from a minority fringe. And friends are not silent when their friends are under attack.”
