    Although destined to begin his exciting new career, the 34-years old, Yekutiel said he remained concerned for his nephews who will be subjected to a bigoted educational system, after the appointment of a radical right-wing member of the incoming coalition, who will have a say in the Education Ministry.
    The new chapter in his life will be with celebrity chef Assaf Granit and his team, in the artistic management of his new complex which will include a hotel, restaurant, and bar-cabaret in Paris' Le Marais neighborhood.

    Until his departure, Yekutiel is living with his father and plans to use the time to study French and lose 10 kilograms (22 pounds.)
    He says the move does not intimidate him because much of his family lives abroad and because he trusts that he will be in good hands with the "Machneyuda" group.

    "I am going to be a part of a very big group that has proven itself to be an empire, in my view," he said. "I wouldn't move if I didn't have a solid anchor and confidence in the people."
