Israel's current president, Reuven Rivlin sent his condolences on the loss of the late Yizhak Navon, Israel's fifth president, and spoke of Yitzhak's admirable character traits.

"Yitzhak created a new style and way of life of presidency ... He was a president who came from the people, and the nation loved and believed in him very much."

Rivlin admired Navon's nobility and humility, saying "Navon never considered himself above the rest, but all eyes looked upon him with admiration and love."

"Today the state of Israel lost a beloved son," he concluded in his message.
