31 December, many Israeli politicians have published a video message, congratulating the citizens with the upcoming 2018.
The Prime Minister congratulated the Russian-speaking Israelis twice. A few days ago he took part in the campaign, explaining that the New year is not Sylvester. In this clip he filmed together with Israeli bloggers Semyon Grafman and Denis by Surkovym.
And 31 December in his blog on Facebook there was an official greeting, recorded in his office: «I congratulate you with coming New year. Traditionally you gather at the table — parents, children, grandchildren. How wonderful to see a strong link between generations, mutual care, commitment to success, your hard work. I grew up on those values, also. I wish you good health, happiness, personal and family well-being. Family values are at the forefront and in the daily work of the government under my leadership. I believe in certain values, I believe in perfectionism, I believe in competition. This is the part of creation and creativity. On the other hand, I believe in helping the needy elderly and the poor. There is no contradiction, but the first makes the second possible. It is a powerful economic revolution that we’ve done here. Now I’m cutting back on bureaucracy. We of the Ministerial Committee for fighting bureaucracy, which I chair, for two years, raised Israel in the competitiveness index from 27th place on the 16th, and we continue to work. On the other hand, I want to reduce taxes, continue to lower taxes, so the money remained with you and also to help the elderly, to raise the minimum wage and the salary of soldiers. That’s what we really do when we combine free economy with social responsibility. It’s not posturing, is not a slogan. That’s what you believe, and I believe it, and I promote our country in this direction. It is a great success for you — a huge part of that success. You make an exceptional contribution, and I appreciate it, really appreciate your commitment to our country and our common values. To have a good year — New year!», — said the head of government.
Congratulations were made by the defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman. In the video, released by his office, the Minister of defence at the request of Santa Claus is coming to congratulate the Israeli family already seated at the table. And when the little girl, pointing to the guest, says he’s not Santa Claus, her mother argues, and says: «It is much better than Santa Claus».
This year, the Minister Naftali Bennett did not prepare the salad «Olivier» and not trying to speak in Russian. On his page in Facebook there is no traditional greetings. But the postcard was published in the blog of Department headed by it. To congratulate students, parents and teachers from the Ministry of education turned out only the second time. The first attempt, when instead of mountains of gifts on the postcard was a picture of nesting dolls in black, has been recognized by users not very unsuccessful.
Blogs of the Minister of transport and exploration Yisrael Katz no one congratulates you with New year, however, his office took care of the «night bus» that will help the Israelites to return home after a night of celebrations.
Congratulated the Israelis a happy New year the former Minister of education Gideon Saar. He starred in the video along with his wife, TV presenter Geula even sa’ar.

This is a video he sent to members of the Likud via WhatsApp, it can also be seen in Facebook as advertising, but blog policy is not.

Knesset member Tali Ploskova issued a video greeting with the New year on the page in social network Facebook. «We are all very different: young and old, immigrants and native-born in Israel, but the attitude of the New year unites all of us, — she wrote. — Happy New year!»
