      Katz Steps Down from Foreign Workers Committee


      National Union Chairman MK Yaakov “Ketzaleh” Katz officially stepped down on Tuesday as head of the Knesset Committee on Foreign Workers and handed over the chairmanship to MK Nitzan Horowitz (Meretz).

      Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin (Likud) thanked Katz for his work, saying, “Your sense of humor and your friendly conduct are captivating. When you want something no one can stand in your way. I’m sure you will continue to contribute to the Knesset and the State of Israel.”
