NEWS of B'nai B'rith

Former Israeli prime minister Yitzhak Shamir, who died June 30 at age 96, represents an indelible link to the founding of Israel. Mr. Shamir devoted his life to the Jewish State from its founding through to modern times.

Many major events in Israel’s short history include the participation of Mr. Shamir.
