Leah Rabin

Leah Rabin is the widow of assassinated Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin. She served with her husband in the Palmach, the secret commando unit of the pre-state underground Jewish army, where he became a war hero. She accompanied him as he rose in the Labor Party to become the first native-born Israeli prime minister in 1974 and 1992, and was with him when he was assassinated in late 1995 by law student Yigal Amiras as the couple was leaving a peace rally in Tel Aviv. Since the assassination, Leah Rabin has been an outspoken critic of impediments to the peace process.
