Yitzhak Rabin, 1922-1995

Rabin was a two-time prime minister whose assassination shattered hopes for peace under the Oslo Accords, for which he shared the 1994 Nobel Peace Prize. He also signed a peace treaty with Jordan in 1994. As a Palmach officer, he was involved in efforts to break the blockade of Jerusalem in 1948 and rose to be the IDF‘s chief of staff during the 1967 war. He served as ambassador to the United States before entering the Knesset with the Labor Party.
