Gov. Sanders recently issued a proclamation setting aside July 23 as “Pray for Peace in Israel Day in Arkansas.”

The proclamation notes that Arkansas is committed to promoting peace and justice, and that “the State of Arkansas recognizes the importance of fostering strong bonds of friendship and support” with Israel.

It recognizes the threats and challenges Israel faces today, and calls on the State of Arkansas to join in prayer for “the peace, security, and prosperity of Israel.”

A copy of the proclamation is available below.
