Former President of Israel Reuven (Ruby) Rivlin, in July of this year, who gave up the chair of the head of state to Yitzhak Herzog, introduced his new life companion to friends and family.

Earlier, 82-year-old Rivlin had already been noticed several times in the company of the same woman. He also appeared with her at a ceremony in memory of David Ben-Gurion, the first prime minister of Israel.

According to some reports, the woman’s name is Sarit, she is about 60 years old, before retirement she worked in the field of education and has never been involved in politics.

Rivlin was widowed in 2019, when his wife Nehama Rivlin (née Shulman), with whom the ex-president lived for almost half a century, passed away after a long illness.

As First Lady, Nehama Rivlin has worked on environmental issues as well as helping women and children. She often accompanied her husband on foreign trips. In particular, in 2016 she visited Ukraine, the homeland of her ancestors, where she took part in events dedicated to the tragedy of Babi Yar.

In recent years, Nehama Rivlin was very sick, doctors diagnosed her with respiratory failure, and she was forced to constantly use a device that made her breathing easier – the first lady could not do without it even during official receptions.

In March 2019, she underwent a lung transplant, the patient’s condition initially improved, but three months later, Nehama Rivlin died, just one day before her 74th birthday.

Social networks reacted positively to the message that the ex-president has a new loved one.

– Even at 82 years old, a person should not be alone. Life goes on, – wrote one of the commentators.
