The Washington State Senate passed a resolution in honor of Israel's 70th Independence Day.

The resolution was submitted by Republican legislator Matt Shea and was approved unanimously despite the fact that the state is considered to be affiliated with the left.

The resolution was promoted by the Jewish Federation in partnership with the Christian organization Bridges for Peace.

The Israeli consul in this area of the United States, Shlomi Kofman, was the special guest for the approval of the resolution.

After the vote, a number of legislators delivered moving speeches about their connection to the State of Israel, following which a Christian woman blew the shofar.
