Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu met on Wednesday in the Knesset with Yonatan Weinberger, who is employed as an assistant to the Knesset Guard.

Weinberger is employed in the Knesset as part of a program to integrate people with special needs and provide them with employment. He is named after Yoni Netanyahu, the Prime Minister’s brother who was killed during an IDF operation to rescue passengers from a hijacked Air France flight in Entebbe, Uganda. Netanyahu was excited to meet Weinberger and gave him an autographed picture.

“I just wanted to tell you that I really appreciate your work. Continue your work,” Weinberger told Netanyahu during the meeting.

Netanyahu thanked Weinberger and told him, “I see you from time to time and I appreciate your support and your smile and your assistance.”
