Cuomo was last in israel in 2014, also on a visit aimed at showing solidarity with israel, that time during Operation Protective Edge.
The governor flew out Saturday afternoon and will arrive in Israel Sunday morning in the company of five staffers and a handful of Jewish leaders from NY, including Allen Fagin of the Orthodox Union, who introduced the governor Wednesday at the event at The Egg where Cuomo announced the trip.
"You must live by the rules that an abuse to one, and an affront to one, is an affront to all and that large fires start as small fires", Cuomo said at a news conference with Israeli President Reuven Rivlin. "We have made it clear that there will be no tolerance for these acts of anti-Semitism".
