Czech Ambassador Ivo Schwarz participated in this year´s Succot celebration of the Haredi consul Rabbi Matityahu on 26 October 2016 in Jerusalem

For several years now, Matityahu Cheshin, affectionately dubbed by a former US ambassador as the Haredi consul, has been hosting Succot celebrations to which invitees include members of the diplomatic community. Among the host of honor of this year were the Czech Ambassador Ivo Schwarz, American Ambassador Daniel B. Shapiro and high representatives of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the State of Israel.

Haredim regard themselves as the most religiously authentic group of Jews. M. Cheshin believe that for foreign diplomats serving in Israel it is important to familiarize themsleves with all the multifaceted sides of the country, and as far as ultra-Orthodox Jews are concerned, he is convinced that if diplomats have a personal connection with them, they can help to dispel false concepts about Jewish communities.
