Celebrating Thailand’s National Day in Israel E-mail

The Royal Thai Embassy in Tel Aviv hosted a reception on 5 December to mark the occasion of the National Day of the Kingdom of Thailand. Many distinguished guests from the Israeli Government, the diplomatic corps, the public and private sectors and the Thai community attended the event at the Hilton Hotel.

In special attendance was Ayoub Kara, Minister of Communications; guest of honour Meron Reuben, Chief of State Protocol, and Gilad Cohen, Deputy Director General, Head of Asia and Pacific Division, Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Ms Penprapa Vongkovit, Thailand’s Ambassador to Israel, delivered a speech emphasising the importance of 5 December as Thailand’s National Day, the Birthday Anniversary of His Majesty the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej, and Thailand’s Father’s Day. In addition, the United Nations General Assembly has declared 5 December as “World Soil Day”.

It also marked a very special occasion for Thais: a sandal-wood-laying ceremony to bid a sad final farewell to His Majesty the late King Bhumibol, which was held at the Thai-Israel Friendship Pavilion in Ben Shemen Park, Modi’in.
