Prime Minister Netanyahu spoke at the memorial service for Sefi Rivlin at the Habimah Theater plaza, "Beloved Sefi, we bid you farewell, but will forever remain with your laughter and wonderful smile, and your blue, smiling eyes. You were one of our most gifted actors and comedians, with exceptional talent. Few had such a stage presence. You had the ability to completely thrill the audience. You made us laugh for generations. You loved the stage and audiences of all ages loved you. You combined humor and depth, you were my brother and friend."
