A bust of Chaim Weizmann, Israel’s first President, that has stood in the square across from the Governor’s Palace here for 15 years, has disappeared. Sources at the City Council said the disappearance was due to subway construction, but no one can say where the bust is now and whether it will be returned to its place once construction ends.
