Every year the heads of diplomatic missions in Israel come to the President’s Residence for a Rosh Hashana toast. The invitations do not include their spouses. This year, however, President Reuven Rivlin and his wife, Nechama, set a new precedent: They invited the spouses on Tuesday, but not at the same time as the ambassadors who will be hosted next week.
Many of them are members of the Diplomatic Spouses’ Club Israel. Julie Fisher, DSCI’s co-president, introduced the club to Rivlin and his wife during the event.
