Of Dreamers and Pragmatists: The Lessons and Legacy of Yitzhak Rabin

By Irving ("Yitz") Greenberg

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, November 24, 1995

Drawing upon the life of the assassinated Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin for inspiration, the author attempts to formulate Jewish principles for using power in an imperfect world. He further analyzes Israeli societal trends of division and delegitimation which, he contends, helped to make the assassination possible, and makes suggestions for the Israeli (and broader Jewish) world to change its culture and intragroup outlook, so as to avoid similar events in the future.
