The Knesset held a special memorial service for a former Cabinet member on the second Jewish anniversary of his assassination. Rehavam Ze’evi, who was murdered by Palestinian gunmen in a Jerusalem hotel on Oct. 17, 2001, was remembered Sunday on his second yahrzeit. Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, Cabinet ministers, legislators and family members turned out to remember Ze’evi, a hawkish politician respected on both ends of the political spectrum for his principled stands.
