Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu found a few moments to get away from heavy political decisions, whether they be a new Basic Law defining Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people, reportedly asking Chief Sephardic Rabbi Yitzchak Yosef for halakhic permission to give the Vatican the Tomb of David, or blocking construction in Judea and Samaria.

In a video uploaded on Wednesday, Netanyahu was caught during some lighters moments, bantering with photographers and urging them to "live their lives" instead of photographing all the time and being "slaves" to their cameras.

In another video uploaded to Netanyahu's YouTube on Thursday, the prime minister can be seen rolling up his sleeves and putting up celebratory banners and flags on the Prime Minister's Office in Jerusalem, ahead of Israel's 66th Independence Day next Tuesday.
