Israeli President Reuven Rivlin expressed his “support and solidarity” in the aftermath of the Charlottesville, Virginia, violence in a letter to the American Jewish community.

“The very idea that in our time we would see a Nazi flag — perhaps the most vicious symbol of anti-Semitism — paraded in the streets of the world’s greatest democracy, and Israel’s most cherished and greatest ally is almost beyond belief,” Rivlin noted in the letter, which was addressed to Malcolm Hoenlein, executive vice chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations.
