A vigil of prayer and study of mishna (tracts of Jewish law) will be held on Wednesday in the Yitzhak Rabin Memorial Synagogue in Rehovot to commemorate the former prime minister who was assassinated in 1995. Likud minister Bennie Begin, Philosophy Prof. Asa Casher, Rabin's son Yuval, Deputy Defense Minister Matan Vilna'i, Rehovot Mayor Rahamim Malul, Rabin's former chauffeur Yehezkel Sharabi and many others will participate in the event, held under the headline "'Do not hate your brother in your heart" [Leviticus 19:17]. The event aims to "mark the heritage of Rabin and allow people from all across the political spectrum and all sects of Judaism to study and pray together with no political connotations," according to a press statement.
