Kollek served as the Mayor of Jerusalem for nearly 30 years, having been in office from 1965 until 1993. Some have referred to him as the builder of Jerusalem, as the city developed into an urban entity that assured free access to all religions. In the pre-state period, he worked in the Haganah and Mossad in securing funds, arms, and immigrants for the state.
