When it comes to aristocracy, the Dayan family is the nearest thing Israel has. In the US you have your Kennedys and Rockefellers, in the UK there is the whole landed gentry class plus, of course, the royal family. Here it is a little more complicated.

The local “upper class” covers all sorts of sectors – those with military and/or political upper echelon connections and some who have amassed huge amounts of wherewithal over the years. In general, the Dayan dynasty, across its various branches, belongs to the former category. Now we can all get a closer, pictorial, look at the extensive family stretch courtesy of a photographic exhibition currently in progress at the Beit Shturman museum at Kibbutz Ein Harod.
