Justice Neal Hendel is sworn in by President Isaac Herzog as the deputy president of the Supreme Court.

Supreme Court President Esther Hayut praises Hendel and lauds his immigrant journey.

“Justice Neal Hendel’s story is a beautiful story of the absorption of immigrants in Israel, of someone who came to Israel at the age of 31 as a lawyer from the United States,” says Hayut, who notes that due to Hendel’s “brilliant professional skills,” he was appointed to his first judicial position just five years after he immigrated to Israel.

Herzog notes that Hendel was sworn into his first position, as a judge in the Beersheba Magistrate’s Court, by his father, the former president Chaim Herzog.
