Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett was hosted in a virtual meeting by leaders of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations on Friday morning in a half-hour conversation covering a number of topics.

According to a news release from Conference of Presidents CEO William Daroff, it resulted in an “open and meaningful exchange of views,” and an opportunity to exchange holiday greetings in advance of Rosh Hashanah.

Bennett discussed what the release called a successful meeting between him and U.S. President Joe Biden last week, as well as the strong friendship between the United States and Israel.

Other topics included the increasing threat posed by Iran, issues related to Jerusalem and efforts to combat the coronavirus pandemic.
