Labor leader Shelly Yechimovich mourned the passing of Miriam Ben-Porat on Thursday, calling her one of the most active and idealistic figures Israeli society has known.

"Ben-Porat constituted a model for imitation, as she was the first and only woman to serve as State Comptroller," Yechimovich said."I am hopeful that Israel will know more impressive public figures like Ben-Porat."
