      In an interview held as Memorial Day for the IDF's Fallen Soldiers approached, MK Shuli Moalem-Refaeli (Bayit Yehudi) spoke with teary eyes about her first husband, Lt. Col. Moshe Moalem, who was killed in a helicopter crash in 1997 along with 72 other soldiers (the tragedy is widely known as "the helicopter disaster").

      MK Moalem-Refaeli's interview touches upon her relationship with her first husband, whom she refers to simply as "Moalem," as all of his friends did, and an earlier loss -- that of her mother. It is a touching documentation of a unique Knesset Member who is able to expose her deepest emotions on television.
