Likud leader Menachem Begin cancelled plans to go to Geneva tomorrow to attend the wedding of a son of Nissim Ga’on, president of the World Sephardi Federation. He called off the trip on the advice of his doctors who thought it might be too tiring at a time when Begin is in the midst of negotiations to form a government. Begin, who suffered a heart attack in March, was hospitalized for a week last month after he complained of chest pains. He was released on May 29 and pronounced fit for his duties but was ordered by his doctors not to overwork.
