Remembering Yitzchak Rabin: 20 years later

Yitzhak_RabinErev L’Zichro Shel Yitzchak Rabin.

It is hard to believe so many years have passed since this tragic turning point in Israel’s history.

On Saturday evening, November 4, 1995 an Israeli gunman took the life of Israeli Prime Minister Yitzchak Rabin just as he finished delivering a message of hope and peace at a monumental rally in Tel Aviv.

Please join us on Monday evening, November 2nd, 7:30pm at Temple Sholom as we commemorate Rabin’s legacy and hear about what it means for Israel today.

The program will begin with a short ceremony to light a candle in memory of Yitzchak Rabin. We will then hear a presentation from Gilad Perry. At the end of Gilad’s presentation we will sing a few songs and there will be questions and discussion.

Join us to hear about Yitzchak Rabin’s legacy and the challenges facing Israel today.

Gilad Perry was present at the peace rally at which Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated and it became a turning point in his life. As a co-founder of Dror Israel, Gilad Perry has sought a deeper understanding of the steps Israel needs to take towards becoming Theodor Herzl’s “exemplary society”. But some problematic symptoms have grown in Israel: hatred between different groups in society, a crumbling social safety net, increasing inequality between rich and poor.
