Justice Minister Tzipi Livni on Saturday mourned the loss of Israeli entrepreneur and social activist Dov Lautman, saying that Israel had lost a dear man who had devoted himself to education.

"Up until his last day he continued to fight for Israeli society, as if he was not sick at all," Livni stated.

The justice minister added that Lautman continued to call her, urging her to take steps to better Israel through education, even as he his health deteriorated.

Livni said that Lautman saw the national mission as bringing minorities and those from the periphery, who were not as financially well-off as others, into the fold of mainstream Israeli society through education.
