Continuing the open house tradition during the Succot holidays carried out by the late Israel President Izhak Ben-Zvi, President and Mrs. Zalman Shazar received today some 6,000 Israelis with whom they exchanged Succot greetings.
The visitors, who streamed into Beit Hanassi–Israel’s White House–all day, were mostly from immigrant settlements. Youth bands and choirs were in attendance and the visitors moved freely through the rooms and gardens with the President who chatted with many of them.
