President Shimon Peres said at the beginning of the Knesset's winter session that social justice is for all groups and called on haredim (ultra-Orthodox) to join the workforce.

In a speech at the opening of the 18th Knesset, Peres spoke about Gilad Schalit and noted the nation's excitement that the captive IDF solider had returned home after being held by Hamas.
