Against a strikingly lighted backdrop of water plunging into the footprints of the twin towers, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel and his wife laid a wreath at the National September 11 Memorial on Thursday night, near the names of some of the four Israeli citizens who died in the attacks.
Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg led the couple on a tour of the memorial, accompanied by the memorial’s architect, Michael Arad; the president of the National September 11 Memorial and Museum, Joseph C. Daniels; and the mayor’s sister, Marjorie B. Tiven, who is the commissioner of the New York City Commission for the United Nations.
A video posted on the prime minister’s YouTube channel shows Mr. Netanyahu and his wife, Sara Ben-Artzi, touching the names of Alona Abraham, who was on her first American vacation when she was killed on United Flight 175, which hit the south tower, and of Shai Levinhar, an employee at Cantor Fitzgerald whose wife had given birth to a daughter only five weeks before the attacks.
