      "The Artist who Smiled with Us All"

      Chairman of the Knesset Education, Culture and Sport Committee, MK Amram Mitzna spoke in honor of popular entertainer Sefi Rivlin who passed away on Tuesday, "He was one of our best comedians, another one of our childhood icons we have bid farewell in recent years. He was always with that inimitable grin, his blue eyes and facial gestures that always made us smile. He was also a political activist, a member of the Rishon Letzion Council way before media figures began entering politics.

      We were most moved by how he bravely shared his health struggle with us on television. The Committee sends condolences to his family and the nation over the passing of the artist who smiled with us all," concluded Mitzna.
