Rivlin welcomes two heads of state to Israel

President Reuven Rivlin on Monday welcomed President Giorgi Margvelashvilli of Georgia, who is in Israel on state visit, and Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite, who is in Israel on a working visit.

Both Rivlin and the Georgian president noted that Georgia is home to one of the oldest Jewish communities in the Diaspora.

Georgia has existed for some 3,000 years said Margvelashvilli, and Jews who came there after the destruction of the First Temple have lived there for 2,600 years.
