NETANYAHU’S FIFTH Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was tasked by President Reuven (Ruvi) Rivlin on April 17 with forming Israel’s 35th government after a majority of 65 to 45 of those elected in party lists recommended him for a fifth term. “Us and them is over,” Rivlin said. “From now on, it’s just us.” The final results were: Likud 35; Blue and White 35; Shas 8; United Torah Judaism 8; Hadash-Ta’al 6; Labor 6; Yisrael Beiteinu 5; Union of Right-Wing Parties 5; Meretz 4; Kulanu 4; and Ra’am-Balad 4.

A gunman opened fire at The Chabad of Poway Synagogue in San Diego on April 27, the last day of Passover, killing Lori Gilbert-Kaye, 60, and wounding three others, including Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein. Witnesses said Gilbert-Kaye jumped in front of the rabbi, who despite his hand wound continued his sermon, saying: “We are strong. We are united. They can’t break us.” Also wounded were a girl, 8, and her uncle, 34, from Sderot. Police said the suspect, John Earnest, 19, of San Diego, turned himself in for what was termed “a hate crime” against Jews.
