Drivers may choose to join the new statewide “Florida Stands with Israel” movement by ordering a specialty license plate for their vehicles. The new plates will represent Florida’s partnership with the Jewish state.

This kind of warmth is why Florida has always been a leading destination for Israeli-Americans,” said Israeli-American Council (IAC) Board Member and IAC for Action Board Chairman Shawn Evenhaim. “This gesture celebrates a long and close relationship. Florida and Israel share many ties, including bilateral trade, common values and leadership in cutting-edge fields that have a quality of life impact for all citizens.”

Through the legislature and recent signing of HB 1135 by Gov. Ron DeSantis, the plate was authorized. It builds on the governor’s establishing legislation that bans anti-Semitism in Florida’s public schools, and trade and travel agreements with Israel since being sworn into office in January 2019.

We applaud and sincerely appreciate this meaningful expression of solidarity and are pleased that the Israeli-American community can play a part in support of these efforts,” Evenhaim said.
