A lot has also been happening in official relations between Israel and Poland recently – historic visits, agreements between governments, dialogue at the highest level. What does the work of the head of a diplomatic mission look like at such a special time and how does the dialogue between governments translate into the daily work of the Israeli Ambassador?
