מרכז הרב: נתניהו התעטף בטלית והתרגש

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu participated on Sunday evening in the central Jerusalem Day celebration at the Mercaz Harav Yeshiva.

During the celebration, the head of the yeshiva and Rabbi Aviezer Strauss, brother of a hero of the Sultan Yakov battle, a soldier who fell after taking out several Syrian tanks singlehandedly and fought alongside Zachary Baumel, presented Netanyahu with a tallit (prayer shawl) on which his Hebrew name was embroidered.

Zachary Baumel's remains were brought to Israel in April, 37 years after he was killed during the First Lebanon War.
