Tel Aviv, the night before the ceremony commemorating the 20th anniversary of Rabin’s assassination

Tomorrow (Saturday), we will commemorate the 20th anniversary of the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin.

Bill Clinton will be one of the main speakers at the event.

In honor of this event, the Tel Aviv municipality has placed numerous famous photos of the late Israeli prime minister in the square where he was assassinated (Yitzhak Rabin square).

I wanted to share them with you.

The older I get, the more I realize what a tragedy his assassination was, and the more it hurts.
