Yonatan (Yoni) Netanyahu is born in New York City to Benzion and Cela Netanyahu. Both parents are working towards the creation of a Jewish State on behalf of the New Zionist Organization. The family moves back to Israel when Yoni is two and he attends the local school in Jerusalem, Darom. He has two younger brothers.
