President Reuven Rivlin has changed his schedule for the coming week following the death on Monday of his older sister Esther Herling Binyamin 84.

Rivlin said that his sister had helped to educate him no less than their mother had done.

Known to her family as Etti, Herling Binyamin was the daughter of Rachel Rivlin and Yehoshua Binyamin who died at an early age. She had been an Etzel combatant in her youth and later had been active in many volunteer capacities. She was born in Jerusalem and will be buried on the Mount of Olives alongside the president’s parents. She is survived by her siblings, three children and many grandchildren.

Funeral and shiva arrangements have not yet been announced.
