Yitzhak Rabin

Yesterday was Yitzhak Rabin memorial day. Our class was canceled and we had a program learning about him and why he was assassinated (Yitzhak Rabin was a Prime Minister of Israel - learn more). We went to the University's Memorial Ceremony which had a pretty good attendance considering classes haven't started here yet. It was all in Hebrew, but they did several readings, sang several songs, and did a memorial prayer. It was very moving.
