The military officer, married and has two children, also holds a degree in Middle Eastern history.

Congratulating N., Herzog said he would be welcomed into the Presidential Advisory Group, as his professionalism enhances the office of the President, the Defense Forces and for the nation of Israel.

Herzog thanked Abu-Rukun for his service at the Presidential Palace and for his exemplary contribution to the defense forces and the nation of Israel.
