Unlike Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, who continued to live in his family’s private residence in Ra’anana this past year, Foreign Minister Yair Lapid plans on moving into the official prime minister’s residence on Balfour Street after he is sworn in as premier later this week.

However, the Balfour residence remains under heavy construction. As a result, Lapid will stay in a nearby compound known as Villa Salameh until the work is complete, Hebrew media reports.
