JERUSALEM, ISRAEL — Marking the 75th anniversary of modern Israel’s independence in 1948, Israeli President Isaac Herzog this morning described the Jewish state as a “modern miracle.”

Herzog specifically cited the writings of the biblical prophet Zechariah as one of the inspirations for the resurrection of the country after centuries of exile.

He pledged his deep commitment to seeking broad national consensus to reform Israel’s judicial process.
