JERUSALEM, Israel — Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis was joined by Governor DeSantis for a presentation of the Florida Cabinet’s resolution that recognized Jerusalem as the eternal and undivided capital of Israel.

We are proud to be highlighting this resolution during our historic business development mission, further affirming Florida and Israel’s strong cultural, economic and academic ties.”
CFO Jimmy Patronis said, “It was a tremendous honor to present this historic declaration of Florida’s unwavering support for Israel to U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman this week in Jerusalem.
