Dermer approved officially as Israel's U.S. envoy

 


JERUSALEM (JTA)—Israel’s Cabinet unanimously approved the appointment of Ron Dermer as Israeli ambassador to the United States.

The appointment of Dermer, a former senior adviser to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, was approved Sunday during the regular weekly Cabinet meeting.

Dermer, who immigrated to Israel from Florida 15 years ago, succeeds Michael Oren, a New Jersey native. Oren announced on July 5 that he would be vacating his post in the fall.

“Ron is one of the most talented and dedicated people I know,” Netanyahu said after the vote. “No one is more appropriate. He will continue the exceptional work of outgoing Ambassador Michael Oren; I am certain that Ron will continue this work.”
