In October 1991, Shulamit Aloni invited me to a personal meeting. I trembled with excitement because I knew and admired her through the media. She had been elected to the Knesset in November 1965, a month before I was born. I wondered what I could do to help that remarkable woman.

The meeting took place at the Hilton Hotel in Jerusalem and to this day I remember the taste of the toast we shared. She asked me if I would be ready to manage the Ratz (Civil Rights Movement) Knesset faction she headed. Of course, I agreed at once.
