An American now living in Israel has told of the moment his former room-mate, Mark Zuckerberg, created Facebook while at Harvard.
Twenty-six-year-old Arie Hasit told Haaretz how he and his friend ate Shabbat dinner together and raised money for charities in Israel.
One day, Zuckerberg told Hasit that he had decided to to build a website for students. “He said, Arie, I built this site. I want you to sign up.”
