The move comes “in gratitude to and appreciation to the president for his unwavering support of Israel,” said Greenberg in a statement.

“We are making history here in the center of Petach Tikvah. We will celebrate this important event on American Independence Day. This is a great honor for Petach Tikvah,” said Greenberg, who mentioned that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, other government officials and US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman would be invited to the naming.

This isn’t the only area in Israel named after the US president.
