(JNS) Israeli President Reuven Rivlin laid a wreath on the grave of the late Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin at the Mt. Herzl National Cemetery in Jerusalem on Wednesday, October 28, to mark the 25th anniversary of his assassination.

“This year, too, we are marking the day of remembrance, despite the state of emergency in which we find ourselves, despite the restrictions the coronavirus imposes on us,” said Rivlin, according to a statement from his office. “We are determined to mark this important day, because these memorial ceremonies are links in the chain that binds us to our people, that connect us to ourselves, to our history and to our roots. Insisting on holding this day of remembrance is our way of declaring that the memory of Yitzhak Rabin belongs to us all.”
