Upon his election, Schnitzer received a letter of congratulations from Israel's Prime Minister, Benyamin Netanyahu, which mentioned "Your talents, professionalism and your many years of experience in diamond exports will contribute significantly toward restoring the Israel diamond industry's standing. I am sure that during your new term you will act to advance the Israel diamond industry and trade, and broaden its activities in the international markets.” Netanyahu further added a hand-written remark, referring to Shmuel Schnitzer's father, Moshe, who was the IDE's longest serving president (1967-1993): "Your father Moshe surely would be proud of you as you continue his life's work," Netanyahu wrote.
