In a talk Tuesday with a solidarity delegation from the Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations at the Knesset, president-elect Reuven Rivlin outlined his vision for his presidency vis-a-vis Israel and the Diaspora.

Explaining that the presidency is more of a symbolic than politically influential role, Rivlin said he views his position as “the one to create dialogue” and “bridge gaps.”
