“Your participation in the Paralympics is a great source of influence of us all,” said Prime Minister Bennett. “You’ve already won gold medals in determination and perseverance in my book,” added Bennett.

At the 2016 Rio Paralympics, Israel took home 3 bronze medals in rowing, shooting, and swimming.
“This is a group of winners. I believe this special group can achieve even more accomplishments,” said Culture and Sports Minister Tropper.
“You are not only an extraordinarily talented group on every level, both in Israel and internationally, but also full of character and spirit,” added Tropper.
The 16th Paralympic Games, held in Tokyo, Japan, are set to begin on August 24.
