Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely (Likud) greeted guests on Thursday and gave the public its first look at her new daughter, Eliraz.
The four-day-old Eliraz was born in the Assaf HaRofeh hospital in Tzrifin, near Rishon LeTzion on Sunday.
“I thank God for Eliraz joining our family,” Hotovely wrote on Facebook.
“We were so touched to receive all of your blessings and congratulations, thank you so much. Happy holiday to all of Israel.”
Hotovely also took the opportunity to release the first images of Eliraz.
Eliraz joins older sister Mayan, the eldest child of Hotovely and husband Ohr Alon.
