‘Hi, Mr. President, I am glad to be in Israel and to learn Hebrew’

New French immigrant Adam Lugassy, nine, hoped to make friends on his first day in the fourth grade, but he never imagined that one of those new faces would be President Reuven Rivlin.

The thin boy with large black glasses, jeans and a white T-shirt, smiled shyly as he recalled their exchange in the school library where Rivlin met with a dozen new pupils from France.

“Hi Mr. President, I am glad to be here in Israel and to learn Hebrew in ulpan,” Adam told Rivlin in French as he read from a note he prepared that morning after learning he would get to meet one of Israel’s most important leaders.
