Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara attended the traditional Mimouna celebration at the home of Aharon Levy in Hadera. Levy, a disabled IDF veteran who fought in the Yom Kippur War, praised the couple, who in return thanked him for the delicious meal.
Netanyahu told Levy: “You remind us of the foundations of our existence. You were a hero.” Netanyahu added: “This beautiful and colorful holiday started as the holiday of one community and became a celebration of all communities. It’s a symbol of the love for Israel. We have a lot of love, hospitality, warmth and joy. I want to wish all of you a happy, colorful and beautiful holiday.”
