Jerusalem (CNN)In pictures, Sara Netanyahu is always the Prime Minister of Israel’s loyal wife. Standing by his side, smiling at her husband, shaking hands with world leaders, she is an ever-present companion on Benjamin Netanyahu’s frequent trips abroad.

One half of Israel’s power couple, Sara Netanyahu can appear as much a part of the country’s leadership as her husband.

On the night of his last election victory in 2015, a jubilant Benjamin Netanyahu said, “I would like to thank my beloved wife Sarah. How many tribulations have you overcome by my side? You have so much strength my wife, and you grant me so much strength.”

This time, the spotlight is all on Sara Netanyahu.
