Prime Miniser Benjamin Netanyahu joined Israeli television personalities Yinon Magal, Eral Segal and Shimon Riklin in an impromptu jam session. Together, they sang Psalm 147:12-13 in its original Hebrew.
Netanyahu knew the Psalm by heart and didn’t skip a beat.
O Yerushalayim, glorify Hashem; praise your God, O Tzion! For He made the bars of your gates strong, and blessed your children within you. (Psalm 147:12-13)
After the video went viral, one of the guitarists, Eral Segal, was fired from his position as a television presenter from the ‘Kann’ Public broadcasting Authority Channel. In a protest of solidarity, his colleague, Kalman Libskind, has refused to work as a presenter for Kann until Segal is reinstated.
