MIAMI-DADE ( October 17, 2023 )– Press release
Today, Mayor Daniella Levine Cava announced that Miami-Dade County will boost its investment in Israel bonds following the brutal Hamas terror attacks earlier this month. The County will invest an additional $25 million in Israeli bonds, bringing the County’s total investment to $76 million.
“In the days since October 7, we have witnessed unimaginable, barbaric acts waged by Hamas terrorists against women, children and the elderly and learned that Hamas has taken hundreds of hostages,” said Mayor Levine Cava. “I’m heartbroken for all those who have lost loved ones to these horrific acts of terror and senseless violence, and for the families of all the Americans killed and those confirmed to be captured. I commend our national and world leaders for coming together to stand united with Israel as we work to protect innocent lives in a growing humanitarian crisis. Today, I am proud to make this additional investment in Israel bonds, as we send a clear message that Miami-Dade stands together with Israel and all nations that champion democracy.”
“I thank Mayor Levine Cava and my County Commission colleagues for their unwavering support of Israel and her right to defend herself against terrorism,” said Commissioner Micky Steinberg. “Our community and Israel have deep cultural ties and we are proud to stand with the people of Israel by deepening our county’s investment.”
Today, the Miami-Dade County Board of County Commissioners also passed a resolution – co-prime sponsored by Commissioner Steinberg and Senator Rene Garcia and co-sponsored by Vice Chairman Anthony Rodriguez and Commissioners Kevin Cabrera, Danielle Cohen Higgins, and Eileen Higgins – supporting Israel and condemning the war launched by Hamas terrorists.
