Economics Minister Naftali Bennett spoke about his best friend, Emanual Moreno, who served with him in the IDF's elite commando unit, Sayeret Matkal.

Moreno was not the strongest soldier or the best sharpshooter, Bennett said. He was "not Brad Pitt." But two things typified him: he always tried harder than everyone else, and he was utterly dedicated to the Nation of Israel.

Seven years after his death in the course of a daring raid against Hizbullah, Moreno's picture cannot be published, due to the secrecy of the missions he was involved in.

Bennett addressed an event that was attended by thousands of participants from the Masa Israel Journey program.
