Shimon Peres, the Israeli president, conferred with a little girl inside the Sofia Synagogue during his one-day visit on 11 August 2010.
Peres came to Bulgaria en route to Romania where he was to take part in commemorations for an Israeli helicopter crew who had died in a crash earlier in the year. "Bulgaria may be a good location for future Israeli-Palestinian talks," Peres said during his brief meeting with President Georgi Parvanov. As part of his speech at the Sofia Synagogue Shimon Peres, who at 87 is Israel's longest serving politician, thanked Bulgaria for having saved "80 percent of its Jews" during the Second World War. His meeting with Bulgaria's tiny Jewish community of about 3,000 was organised by the Shalom Jewish Organisation.
