Born in pre-war Poland, Mr. Peres emigrated with his family to what was then British controlled Palestine in the 1930’s. A former President of Israel, he saw the need for peace in the region and was awarded the Nobel Peace prize for his part in creating the Oslo Peace Accords.
He was 93. My heart goes out to his family and those who knew him.
Todah rabah, sir for a lifetime of service. RIP.
