VIDEO: Bennett goes for gold

Ben Harris

Naftali Bennett is known for many things, but his stellar singing voice isn’t one of them. At a rally Sunday in Tel Aviv, Bennett, the head of the Jewish Home Party, picked up a guitar to perform the Naomi Shemer classic “Jerusalem of Gold.”

Bennett struggled in the performance, switching octaves as the song veered out of his range and, toward the end, doing away with the guitar entirely and letting the crowd carry him. Bennett’s party is expected to take about a dozen seats in tomorrow’s election, which as Ben Sales wrote today, remains too close to call.
