On November 4, 1995, the 12th of Heshvan 5756, the Prime Minister and Minister of Defense of the State of Israel, Yitzhak Rabin, was assassinated at the close of a peace rally entitled, “Yes to Peace, No to Violence,” in the Kings of Israel Square in Tel Aviv. The assassination took place at the height of a difficult political struggle that was accompanied by incitement against the Prime Minister and against the political process he led. The assassination of Yitzhak Rabin challenged the democratic foundations of the State of Israel and brought to surface societal conflicts that had gone unexamined for decades.

The Yitzhak Rabin Center is Israel’s national institute commemorating Prime Minister and Minister of Defense Yitzhak Rabin and ensuring the lessons from his assassination are learned. Established by Knesset law, the Yitzhak Rabin Center is comprised of the Archives & Library, Educational Department and, at its heart, The Israeli Museum, detailing the history and development of the modern state of Israel. Through the museum and its educational activities, the Center seeks to educate, promote dialogue, build tolerance and understanding, and instill democratic values among Israel’s youth, students, soldiers, educators and citizens as well as visitors from abroad.
