Hundreds of visitors come to the Knesset every day and are invited to the committee hearings.
But on Thursday, there was an exciting tour of the Knesset that was unparalleled in the Mishkan, and the Knesset section of "Israel Today" accompanied it closely.
About 30 graduates of the 5th class of the "Boyer" school made their way to the Knesset gates on Thursday morning, who came to the Knesset for a kind of class meeting, marking the 50th anniversary of their graduation.
Usually, the guests are the ones who are excited to enter the public gallery in the plenum, but this time the guests had a surprise that did not leave one eye dry.
Before the tour, members of the mythological school asked to meet the Speaker of the Knesset, MK Miki Levy, and told the director of the visitors' center, Dr. Moshe Foxman, that they wanted to surprise the Speaker.

The members of the group who met the chairman of the Knesset library were excited to tell him at the beginning of the meeting: "We are the classmates of your brother, the late Pini Levy. We studied with him in class, class and the biological trend."
Pini, the younger brother of Chairman Levy, is the second son of a family of five children. He attended the Katznelson Elementary School in Jerusalem, and completed his high school education at the Boyer School in the biological major.
He enlisted in the IDF in June 1972 and volunteered for the Paratroopers Brigade, during which he did most of his military service in the regular and reserve. Pini participated in the Yom Kippur War together with his brother, the Speaker of the Knesset.
Pini was stationed in the Syrian sector and took part in the bloody battles in which some of his closest comrades fell.
On the eve of Passover, Pini and his wife Shoshi celebrated a bar mitzvah for their eldest son Roi, and a month later, the Levy family lost their younger brother Ronen in a car accident in the United States, when he was twenty-five years old.
Six months later, on November 13, 1990, Pini was killed by a terrorist while in reserve service.

"I have a kind of millstone on my shoulders," the chairman shared with Pini's friends.
His battalion descended to the waterline at the Allenby Bridge, and a terrorist crossed the lines from Jordan, crawled under the fence and shot Pini, who was at the time on guard duty.
I feel that Pini is here between your lines, even though more than 30 years have passed. "
"Pini in the heart of us all"
Yehudit Gondar Levin, Pini's friend on the school bench, said at the meeting: "We sat together for two years at the same table. He had a kind of inner peace, one that you knew that with Pini next to you - there is someone to trust." Tali Marcus, another friend, shared: "We would copy lessons a lot from each other. With a smile I would say it was a joint copy, although I often remember Pini not preparing lessons. Still, when the teacher turned to him to read them, he would read from a blank page what "That he would like to write. There is no doubt that Pini went into all of us's hearts."
Ronit Levinger, also a friend of Pini's on the school bench, recounted how during a Purim party she noticed that the time had passed when she promised her father to return home, and the fun of the party had just begun: "Pini saw that I was at a loss, and said to me 'Come on, And I'll be back to the party in half an hour. 'I got on Vespa for the first time in my life, and in the middle of the road was a mound of mud. ".
At the end of the meeting, Pini's friends gave the Speaker of the Knesset a picture of his brother from school, and one of the group photos in which the late Pini was photographed, we asked the section to recreate together with Speaker Levy, against the backdrop of the Knesset. R.
"We will not forget this day," everyone concluded, "we will not forget Pini."
