Our Board of Governors opened their fall meetings in the Old City of Jerusalem with a moment of silence in memory of slain Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, who was murdered twenty years ago today. Read an excerpt from Chairman Natan Sharansky's remarks.

"We see here the ruins of our temple and of Jerusalem. It was the Romans who destroyed the sanctuary, but our sages say that the true cause of the destruction was sin’at hinam (baseless hatred). Twenty years ago today, Israel experienced an event that represented a nadir of sin’at hinam: the murder of a prime minister. We honor the memory of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin with a moment of silence, and we must always remember that in order to overcome the challenges that lie before us and continue to build our country, we must eradicate sin’at hinam."

Introduction
The Jewish Agency has been instrumental in founding and building the State of Israel and continues to serve as the main link between the Jewish state and Jewish communities everywhere. This global partnership has enabled us to address the Jewish People’s greatest challenges in every generation.

Today, we connect the global Jewish family, bringing Jews to Israel, and Israel to Jews, by providing meaningful Israel engagement and facilitating Aliyah. We build a better society in Israel - and beyond - energizing young Israelis and their worldwide peers to rediscover a collective sense of Jewish purpose.
