With the red carpet out for a visiting dignitary, Knesset Guard Guy Gosland invited his girlfriend, Bat-El, to see an honor guard at work.

As Bat-El approached them, the guard stood at attention and Gosland left the formation, got down on one knee and asked her to marry him; she said yes.

The police band that was there played “Hava Nagilla” and Knesset Director-General Ronen Plott wished them mazal tov in Knesset Speaker Yuli Edeltstein’s name. Gosland got the rest of the day off to celebrate his engagement, and a different guard took his place.

According to the Knesset, this was the first proposal to take place at the seat of government, but it may not be the last.
