In addition, Bennett will speak about the Iranian nuclear threat, saying: “We will do what is necessary”.

The speech is expected to take place at 9 a.m. in New York and 4 p.m. in Israel, before the Simhat Torah feast begins on Monday evening. Bennett will only be in the United States for one day of vacation because he is Israeli; Jews in the Diaspora observe two days.

The prime minister is expected to hold parallel meetings with other UN leaders.

Netanyahu tweeted that “Bennett’s obsession with differentiating himself from Netanyahu in every way is costing Israel in the fight against Corona, against the Iranian nuclear program and the diplomatic fight against the Palestinians.

“Instead of ridiculously attacking Prime Minister Netanyahu’s many successful speeches at the UN, Bennett should read those speeches carefully and learn how to get the world’s attention and enlist it in Israel’s interests,” he said. -he declares. ” Good luck. “

Bennett also plans to meet with leaders of Jewish organizations in New York City, after being unable to do so in Washington last month, due to COVID-19 restrictions.

The Prime Minister plans to deliver a speech on the link between Israel and the Jewish Diaspora.

“He plans to tell the story of the new government to those who have moved away from Israel in recent years, in order to bring them back to support,” Sidi said.

Bennett will also speak about his personal history, as the son of immigrants from the United States to Israel, having spent years of his life in the United States.
