The delegation brought along with them ten young teenagers with special needs who do volunteer work in the IDF, led by Lt. Ariel Almog.
The Prime Minister and the Minister of Defense were very excited to meet the soldiers and commended the work volunteering to assist the IDF in a variety of areas, and blessed them and their families with a happy new year full of achievements and good health.
Rabbi Blinitzki blew the shofar and gave the Prime Minister and the Minister of Defense honey from hives of Kfar Chabad. A tradition started by his grandfather, former Chairman of Aguch, late Rabbi Shlomo Midanchik.
