Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sent his condolences to Uri Orbach's family. "I grieve the passing of Uri Orbach, a minister in the government of Israel, writer, journalist, spiritual man and Jewish patriot," Netanyahu said.

"I have never known anyone that met him and didn't love him. Yesterday, next to his family, I said goodbye to him at the hospital with a sense of profound grief and loss. Uri will be missed by his dear family, his fellow ministers, and the State of Israel."
