Rabin, Leah

(1928-2000)
   The wife of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, who began to emerge in her own right after Rabin's assassination in November 1995. She directly linked Likud and Benjamin Netanyahu with the assassination and accused the right wing of fostering a bitter political climate from which the assassination sprang. Prior to the murder, she had basically played a social role and was involved in charitable activities but had not engaged directly in politics. Her autobiography is entitled Rabin: Our Life, His Legacy. She died on 12 November 2000 of cancer.
