March 1972) is an Israeli politician who has led the right-wing
The Jewish Home
The Jewish Home party since 2012. He has served as Israel's
Minister of Education since 2015, and as the Minister of Diaspora
Affairs since 2013. Between 2013 and 2015, he held the posts of
Minister of Economy and Minister of Religious Services.
Born and raised in Haifa, the son of immigrants from the United
States, Bennett served in the
Sayeret Matkal and
Maglan special forces
units of the
Israel Defense Forces, taking part in many combat
operations, and subsequently became a software entrepreneur. In 1999,
he co-founded, and co-owned, the US company Cyota, operating in the

Naftali Bennett was born in Haifa, Israel, on 25 March 1972. He is the
youngest of three sons born to Jim and Myrna Bennett, American Jewish
immigrants who moved to
San Francisco in 1967, a month
after the Six-Day War. His father's Jewish roots come from Poland,
Germany, and the Netherlands. His maternal grandparents moved to San
Francisco from Poland 20 years before the outbreak of World War II,
and relocated to
Israel as seniors, and settled on Vitkin Street in
Haifa. Some of his mother's other family members, who remained in
Poland, died in the Holocaust. Both of Bennett's parents observe
Modern Orthodox Judaism. After moving to Israel, they volunteered for
a few months at kibbutz Dafna, where they studied the Hebrew language,
then settled in the Ahuza neighborhood of Haifa. Jim Bennett was a
successful real estate broker turned real estate entrepreneur.
Bennett's mother, Myrna, was the deputy director general of the
Association of Americans and Canadians in Israel's northern
program. When Bennett was four, the family moved to
two years as part of his father's job. Upon returning to Haifa,
Bennett began attending Carmel elementary school. When he was in
second grade, the family moved to
New Jersey for two years, again as
part of his father's job. The family returned to
Haifa when Bennett
Bennett has two brothers. One of them, Asher, is a businessman who is
now based in the United Kingdom. His other brother, Daniel, is an
accountant for Zim Integrated Shipping Services.
Naftali Bennett attended Yavne
Yeshiva High School in Haifa, and
became a youth leader ("Madrich") with the religious Zionist youth
organization Bnei Akiva.
During his national service in the
Israel Defense Forces, Bennett
served in the
Sayeret Matkal and
Maglan units as a company commander;
he continues to serve in the reserves today with the rank of major.
Bennett served in the Israeli security zone in Lebanon during the
1982-2000 South Lebanon conflict. He took part in many operations,
including Operation Grapes of Wrath. After his IDF service, Bennett
received a law degree from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
During the 2006 Lebanon War, he was called up as a reservist and
participated in a search and destroy mission behind enemy lines,
Hezbollah rocket launchers.
Some of Bennett's actions while serving as a special forces commando
are controversial. Journalist Yigal Sarna argued that Bennett
displayed "poor judgement", while serving in the
Maglan commando unit,
during Operation Grapes of Wrath. Sarna argued that, "Bennett led a
force of 67 combat troops into Lebanon. At a certain point, he decided
to ignore orders and change operational plans, without coordinating
these moves with his superiors, who in his mind were cowardly, and not
steadfast enough. Near the village of Kfar Kana, Bennett's troops were
caught in an ambush... 102 civilians were killed, and 10 wounded, of
them four United Nations peacekeepers." Bennett responded, writing: "I
have now been subjected to an attack claiming that I am 'responsible
for the massacre in Kfar Kana'", Bennett wrote. "Heroism will not be
investigated. Keep looking in the archives. My military file is
available for viewing, and it's waiting for you." Former members
of Bennett's unit wrote a letter defending him, saying: "Naftali...
led many successful operations that led to the elimination of
Hezbollah terrorists deep in enemy territory”.
Bennett moved to the
Upper East Side
Upper East Side of
Manhattan to build a career as
a software entrepreneur. In 1999, he co-founded Cyota, an
anti-fraud software company, and served as its CEO. The company was
sold in 2005 to
RSA Security for $145 million, making Bennett a
multi-millionaire in the process. Despite being sold, a
stipulation of the deal allowed the Israeli arm of Cyota to remain
intact. As a result, 400 Israelis are employed at the company’s
Israeli offices in
Beersheba and Herzliya. Bennett has also served
as the CEO of Soluto, a technology company providing cloud-based
service that enables remote support for personal computers and mobile
devices in 2009, at a time when he and partner Lior Golan were engaged
in raising funds for a myriad of Israeli technology startup companies.
Soluto had hitherto raised $20 million from investors, including
venture capital funds Giza Venture Capital, Proxima Ventures, Bessemer
Venture Partners, Index Ventures, Michael Arrington's CrunchFund, Eric
Schmidt's Innovation Endeavors and Initial Capital. The sale of Soluto
for a reported $100-130 million to an American company Asurion, was
finalized in October 2013.
Return to Israel, entry into politics, and personal life
Since moving on from software entrepreneurship, Bennett returned to
Israel, and since then moved on towards a career in politics. His
wife, Gilat, was secular, but now observes the Jewish Sabbath and
religious Jewish kosher laws regarding food. She is a professional
pastry chef. The couple have four children, and live in Ra'anana, a
city about 20 kilometres (12 mi) north of Tel Aviv and 2
kilometres (1.2 mi) from the Mediterranean. Like
his brothers, Bennett observes Modern Orthodox Judaism.
After he took part in the 2006 Lebanon War, Bennett joined the Leader
of the Opposition Benjamin Netanyahu, and served as his Chief of Staff
from 2006 to 2008. Among attending to other issues, he led a team
which developed Netanyahu's educational reform plan. He also ran
Netanyahu's primary campaign to lead the
Likud party in August 2007.
On 31 January 2010, Bennett was appointed as the director-general of
Yesha Council and led the struggle against the settlement freeze
in 2010. He served in this position until January 2012.
In April 2011, together with Ayelet Shaked, he co-founded My Israel,
which claims to have 94,000 Israeli members. In April 2012, he founded
a movement named "Yisraelim" - i. e., Israelis. The movement's main
goals include increasing
Zionism among centre-right supporters,
increasing dialogue between the religious and secular communities, and
finally, promoting "The
Israel Stability Initiative".
Subsequently, Bennett resigned from the
Likud and joined The Jewish
Home, while announcing his candidacy for the party leadership. In the
internal elections, on 6 November 2012, he won 67% of the votes, and
was elected as head of The Jewish Home. In the 2013 legislative
elections Bennett led the party to an achievement of 12 seats in the
Following his election to the Knesset, Bennett had to renounce his
U.S. citizenship, which he held as the son of American parents, before
he could take up his seat. He was appointed Minister of the
Economy and Minister of Religious Services in March 2013. In April
2013, he was also appointed Minister of Jerusalem and Diaspora
Affairs. As a senior Cabinet Member, he plays a major role in
financial, political and security affairs.
After being re-elected in the 2015 elections, Bennett was appointed
Minister of Education and retained the Diaspora Affairs portfolio in
the new government. In 2015, Prime Minister Netanyahu split the
Ministry of Jerusalem and Diaspora Affairs, initially taking back the
Jerusalem Affairs portfolio for himself. He later appointed Ze'ev
Elkin to the role of Jerusalem Affairs Minister.
In his function as Minister of Education, Bennett issued an official
order that prohibits school principals from inviting members of
Shovrim Shtika and other organizations that denounce Israel's military
conduct in the West Bank. Under Bennett's supervision, the
Ministry of Education changed the school curricula in order to include
an increased number of visits to heritage sites in Judea and Samaria.
In October 2015, Bennett resigned from the
Knesset in order to allow
Shuli Mualem to take his seat. His resignation took place under the
Norwegian Law, which allowed ministers to resign their seats when in
the cabinet but return to the
Knesset if they leave the
government. He returned to the
Knesset on 6 December 2015 after
Avi Wortzman opted to vacate his seat, having temporarily had to
resign as a minister in order to do so.
Bennett at the pre-election foreign-policy debate at the Hebrew
University of Jerusalem, 8 January 2013
On February 2012, Bennett published a plan for managing the
Israeli–Palestinian conflict, called "The
Initiative." The plan is based in part on parts of earlier
initiatives: "Peace on Earth" by Adi Mintz and the "Elon Peace Plan"
by Binyamin Elon, and relies on the statements of the Prime Minister
Benjamin Netanyahu and
Likud party ministers that spoke in favor of
unilateral annexation of the West Bank. Bennett opposes the creation
of a Palestinian state: "I will do everything in my power to make sure
they never get a state."
He suggests a tripartition of the Palestinian territories. Thus,
Israel should unilaterally annex Area C, authority over the Gaza Strip
should be transferred to Egypt, while Area A and Area B would remain
with the Palestinian National Authority, but under the security
umbrella of the
Israel Defense Forces and
Shin Bet to "ensure quiet,
suppress Palestinian terrorism, and prevent
Hamas from taking over the
territory". Area C constitutes 62% of the area, and approximately
365,000 people live in Israeli settlements. The Palestinians that live
in this area would be offered Israeli citizenship or a permanent
residency status (between 48,000, according to Bennett, or as many as
150,000, according to other surveys). Finally,
Israel would invest
in creating roads so Palestinians can travel between Areas A and B
without checkpoints, and invest in infrastructure and joint industrial
zones, because "Peace grows from below - through people, and people in
daily life". Bennett also resists immigration of Palestinian refugees
now living outside of the West Bank, or the connection between the
Gaza Strip and the West Bank. In 2011, Bennett noted
that there were about 50 factories in the
West Bank industrial region
where Israelis and Palestinians work together, and cited this as one
workable approach to finding peace between the two sides.
Bennett suggests that
Israel must learn to live with the Palestinian
problem without a "surgical action" of separation to two states: "I
have a friend who's got shrapnel in his rear end, and he's been told
that it can be removed surgically, but it would leave him disabled...
So he decided to live with it. There are situations where insisting on
perfection can lead to more trouble than it's worth." Bennett's
"Shrapnel in the butt" thus quickly became widely known as
representing his view of the Palestinian problem.
In response to Israel's release of Palestinian prisoners in 2013,
Bennett said Palestinian terrorists should be shot, and is quoted to
have said, "I already killed lots of Arabs in my life, and there is
absolutely no problem with that". Bennett was widely condemned for
these words, though he denied these allegations, and claimed
he said that "terrorists should be killed if they pose an immediate
life threat to our soldiers when in action".
In January 2013, he said, "There is not going to be a Palestinian
state within the tiny land of Israel", referring to the area from the
Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea. "It's just not going to happen.
A Palestinian state would be a disaster for the next 200 years."
In December 2014, a group of academics who are against the Boycott,
Divestment and Sanctions movement and members of The Third Narrative,
Labor Zionist organization, called on the U.S. and E.U. to impose
sanctions on Bennett and three other Israelis "who lead efforts to
insure permanent Israeli occupation of the
West Bank and to annex all
or parts of it unilaterally in violation of international law". These
academics, calling themselves Scholars for
Israel and Palestine (SIP),
and claiming to be "pro-Israel, pro-Palestine, pro-peace", asked the
U.S. and EU to freeze Bennett's foreign assets and impose visa
restrictions. Bennett was chosen in particular as a target for
proposed sanctions because of his work in opposing the 2010 settlement
freeze while he was director of the Yesha settlements council,
actively supporting annexation of over 60% of the
West Bank and
"pressing strongly for a policy of creeping annexation."
In November 2016, following the election of
Donald Trump as the
President of the United States, Bennett maintained he saw this as hope
that the two-state solution would no longer be considered viable,
claiming, "The era of the Palestinian state is over."
In October 2016, Bennett said that, "On the matter of the Land of
Israel, we have to move from holding action to a decision. We have to
mark the dream, and the dream is that Judea and Samaria will be part
of the sovereign State of Israel. We have to act today, and we must
give our lives. We can't keep marking the Land of
Israel as a tactical
target and a Palestinian state as the strategic target." 
Economy and society
Bennett with President of
Israel Reuven Rivlin, Michal Ansky, and Ofra
Strauss at the Jasmine businesswomen's convention for promotion of
small and medium-sized enterprises, Israel, 15 December 2014
Bennett believes in a free economy, and that private businesses are
the engine for economic growth. He is in favor of social support of
vulnerable populations such as the elderly and disabled. Bennett says
Israel needs to break the monopoly of the tycoons, the major labor
unions, and the Ministry of Defense, that are, in his opinion,
strangling the economy of Israel. In addition, he believes that the
key to reducing disparities is equality of opportunity and investment
in education in the periphery, to give tools to populations of weaker
economic backgrounds. By doing so, Bennett believes weaker populations
Israel will be given the opportunity to succeed professionally and
financially. He supports the provision of land to veterans in the
periphery, in the Negev, and the Galilee, to promote a national
solution to the problem of "affordable housing" and a more
equitable distribution of the population in Israel. He has also
pledged to remove heavy bureaucratic challenges to small and
medium-sized Israeli businesses. As an adherent of Orthodox
Judaism, Bennett is opposed to the implementation of same-sex marriage
in Israel, "just as we don't recognize milk and meat together as
kosher", but has expressed support for equivalent rights such as
tax breaks for same-sex couples.
As Economy Minister, Bennett oversaw a new strategy by
increase trade with emerging markets around the world and reduce trade
with the European Union, so as to diversify its foreign trade. The two
main reasons for this shift are to take advantage of opportunities in
emerging markets, and to avert the threat of possible EU sanctions on
Israel over the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Bennett himself
acknowledged that he was seeking to reduce Israel's economic
dependence on the EU to reduce its influence on Israel. According to
the Financial Times, Bennett is the primary architect of this economic
pivot. Under Bennett's leadership, the Economy Ministry began opening
new trade attaché offices in Asia, Africa, and South America, and
also began closing some trade offices in Europe and consolidating
others with offices in neighboring countries. As part of this process,
Bennett opened negotiations with
China on free trade
agreements, oversaw continuing negotiations with
India for a free
trade agreement, and personally led economic delegations to
India. While attending the World Trade Organization Ministerial
Conference of 2013 in Bali, Indonesia, Bennett held talks with
delegations from some unspecified countries over the possibility of
future free trade agreements.
Bennett also implemented reforms to lower Israel's high food prices.
Under his oversight, import duties and barriers were reduced, and
mechanisms were set up to ensure more competition in the Israeli food
industry. These reforms have been credited with a decline in Israeli
food prices that began in April 2014 and continued throughout the rest
of the year and into 2015. According to a
however, a fall in global commodity prices and dire financial straits
among many Israeli consumers prompted the decline, and not the
Bennett has led a push to integrate Haredi men and Israeli-Arab women,
many of whom are unemployed, into the workforce. According to Bennett,
their integration into the workforce will greatly bolster economic
growth. Under his "voucher plan", the Ministry of the Economy issues
vouchers for hundreds of vocational schools that will allow Haredi men
to avoid mandatory military service, or at least temporarily, in
exchange for enrolling in a vocational school to learn a job. Bennett
has also greatly bolstered aid and government programs for Arab women
to encourage more of them to enter the workforce, with the goal of
doubling their employment rate from 25 to 50 percent in five
