The Quezon City Government, represented by Mayor Herbert M. Bautista and the Embassy of the State of Israel, represented by Ambassador Ephraim Ben Matityau, signed the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for the construction of the Philippine-Israel Friendship Park at the Quezon Memorial Circle.
The ceremony was held at the Bulwagang Amoranto, 3rd floor of the QC Hall main building.
Ms. Cory Quirino, granddaughter of former Pres. Elpidio Quirino, and Atty. Aleli Angela S. Quirino attended the signing ceremony as representatives of the Quirino family.
The signing of the MOU also marks the 60 years of continuing friendly relations between the Philippines and Israel, which dates back to the time when Pres. Manuel L. Quezon offered safe refuge to Jewish refugees fleeing the Nazi regime during World War II.

Quezon issued visas to some 1,500 Jewish immigrants and provided shelter to the refugees in housing communities in an area now part of Quezon City. Quirino assisted the second wave of Jewish refugees and helped them settle in Samar.
To honor Quezon’s role, the Israeli government has installed monuments and markers at Israel’s Open Doors monument in Rishon Lezion Memorial Park and at the Jerusalem Boys Town.
In 2014, Ambassador Matityau presented Mayor Bautista with a symbolic olive tree as a gift to Quezon City, in remembrance of President Quezon’s historic role and humanitarian gesture in providing Jews with safe passage into the Philippines to save them from the Holocaust.
After the signing of the MOU, Mayor Bautista presented the Israeli ambassador with the Key to the City and a copy of his biography book.
Heads of various QC departments and city officials attended the event.
