Urich and Golan at Rabbi Kanievsky's home
Urich and Golan at Rabbi Kanievsky's home credit: none

Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky, a leading haredi rabbi, on Wednesday blessed Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's advisers.

The advisers, Jonatan Urich and Boaz Golan, received a blessing for success "against the persecution by the Prosecutor's Office and police."

At the end of the meeting, Urich said: "With G-d's help and with the blessing of the rabbi, we will see salvation very soon."

Urich and Golan were interrogated on suspicion of harassing a witness, and the police confiscated their cellular phones - a step which drew sharp criticism from the police.

The two are suspected of harassing Shlomo Filber , a state witness who testified against Netanyahu in Case 4000.
