Cuomo Holds First Public Meeting of His Cabinet in Two-and-a Half Years

The rash of antisemitic incidents that has hit the the U.S. is "disgusting" and "reprehensible", New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said Sunday at Yad Vashem during a whirlwind one-day unity trip to Israel's Cuomo said there have been some 100 acts of antisemitism in the USA in recent weeks, including in New York, something he said "violates every tenet of the New York State tradition". The governor made the comments as he paid his respects at Yad Vashem, the Jewish Holocaust memorial in Jerusalem.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo says a recent rash of anti-Semitic acts in the United States is "reprehensible" and his state will have no tolerance for them.

Cuomo left Saturday and will return from Israel Monday.

"The relationship between the Jewish community and the state of NY is built on mutual support and respect", Mr. Cuomo, a Democrat, said in remarks before a tour of Israel's Holocaust memorial. I will be here again.

YouTube launches its own live TV streaming service
Local news programming from network affiliates will also be included, according to Robert Kyncl, YouTube's chief business officer. Since its inception, YouTube in particular has had copyright issues with the TV and movies studios and music labels.

Cuomo was last in israel in 2014, also on a visit aimed at showing solidarity with israel, that time during Operation Protective Edge.

Following the lunch, the Governor announced the launch of the New York-Israel Commission, and the partnership between New York Genome Center and Technion-Israel Institute of Technology. "On behalf of the State of Israel, I would like to express our appreciation for your visit and for the clear and powerful message you have sent". And we are deeply touched by Vice President Pence who went and gave a hand - and a voice - in fixing the broken gravestone.

There have been more than 100 bomb threats against US Jewish organisations since the beginning of the year and three Jewish cemeteries have been vandalised, with some analysts blaming the politics of the Donald Trump era. "It is a sign of great hope and civil courage".

"We hope that the actions being taken by Governor Cuomo will serve as a precedent for other states nationwide", said Moishe Bane, President of the Orthodox Union. The visit also was meant to bolster economic ties between Israel and New York State.
