A former Jewish Agency for Israel official was honored for strengthening ties between Serbia and Israel. Arie Livine, who emigrated from Serbia to Israel in 1956 and worked at the Jewish Agency for 40 years, was honored Monday in Belgrade by the Serb government. Born in 1921, Livine has devoted much of the last decade to developing Serbia-Israel ties, and in 1999 pressed for the end of NATO’s bombing of Belgrade. He currently is the World Jewish Congress’ special adviser for the former Yugoslav countries.
