Had the Labor Party under his leadership been received with the same popularity as his election to the chairmanship of the Jewish Agency, Isaac Herzog would have been prime minister, and Benjamin Netanyahu would have been the leader of the opposition – or he might have taken another time-out from politics.

Political rivals as well as people in his own party were in accord that Herzog is the best person for the job, particularly given his family’s long record of public service. Several people who hailed his election recalled that his grandfather had been the first Ashkenazi chief rabbi of the nascent State of Israel, and that his father had been the nation’s sixth president.
