Even before the birth of the State of Israel, the Jews in this country have been plagued by recurring waves of terrorism, which over the years have not only claimed countless lives but also caused serious physical and mental injuries to survivors. Bereaved families have been left broken in spirit by the sudden loss of loved ones, and the manner in which they died, President Reuven Rivlin said on Sunday at Beit HaNassi during a tribute he hosted for social workers and rehabilitation therapists affiliated with the National Insurance Institute.

Declaring that the nation owes an enormous debt of gratitude to the dedicated workers of the NII who day in and day out help the victims and their families to cope, Rivlin acknowledged that NII employees work under the radar, and do not receive the recognition that they deserve. He was honored, he said, to be able to say thank-you to them on his own behalf and on behalf of the nation.
