MK Yehuda Glick [Likud] surprised the Knesset on Tuesday by announcing that he intends to remarry. Glick had been a widower for the past year after his wife, Yaffa, passed away on January 1 2018.

"I am glad to tell you that Hadas [Disin] and I decided to get married," Glick told the Knesset to standing ovation, "while everybody will be busy with the party elections and the upcoming national elections, Hadas and I will be busy building a new home."

Glick said he met his new wife while working on a project that helps orphans and widows headed by Miss. Didin. The foundation is called Amitizm, which translates to "brave."  

Disin lost her husband 17 years ago and has four children from her previous marriage. In an interview with Channel 7 she said that "in general, there is no [attempt to] answer [the pain of being an orphan or a widower] in our community [religious Zionists] or in the general population."

"People think that if we marry again then everything will work out," she said, "but there's no connection between a marriage and opening a second chapter and losing your spouse at a young age."

Glick, who was born in the US, survived an assassination attempt in 2014. The suspected shooter, Mutaz Hijazi, allegedly shot him and said that he was defending the Al-Aqsa mosque. Glick is famous for visiting the Temple Mount and insisting of its importance to Jews and Judaism.

Glick has four children from his previous marriage, two were adopted by him and his wife after they were married.
