Bhutan and Israel established formal ties in December 2020, although the two countries have had a strong unofficial relationship since 1982.

Key areas of cooperation are economic, technological and agricultural development. The two countries have been further enhancing ties between people through cultural exchanges and tourism.

This was an opportunity for the two peoples to learn more about each other’s cultures, histories and countries in a relaxed and friendly environment at the ACT Jewish Centre. The gathering involved a talk from Rabbi David on Judaism, a tour of the Community Centre from JCC Treasurer Dr David Rosalky, and speeches from Israeli DCM Ron Gerstenfeld and Bhutanese Minister-Counsellor Jigme Tenzin.
