Begin Moves to His New Home

Download PDF for this date

After 102 days of self-imposed isolation, former Premier Menachem Begin quietly moved from his official residence to his new home last night in an almost clandestine operation.

Begin was driven from the Prime Minister’s home in a limousine after dark. Only a few passersby and several photographers witnessed the move. Photographs of Begin published in Yediot Achronot today showed him clean-shaven, indicating that the skin ailment which plagued him has improved.
