State Representative Peter Beck (R-Mason) has announced that the Ohio House of Representatives yesterday passed House Concurrent Resolution 16, which honors the State of Israel on its 65th Anniversary.

The resolution, which passed with unanimous support in the House, commends Israel’s “strategic partnership with the United States based on shared democratic values, friendship, and respect” and celebrates this significant milestone.

“It is an honor to celebrate the 65th anniversary of Israel as a modern nation and our continuing relationship,” said Rep. Beck.

The United States was one of the first countries to recognize Israel’s independence when it was declared a state in 1948. House Concurrent Resolution 16 highlights Israel’s work to establish peaceful relations with neighboring countries and its role as a model of democratic values.
