15th Anniversary of the Death of Menachem Begin, of Blessed Memory

Kudos to Rick Richman at Jewish Current Issues
for calling attention to the fact that today is the 15th anniversary of the death of Menachem Begin, a hero of the struggle for Israeli independence, Israel's first non-Labor prime minister, and in my view one of the truly great leaders of the Jewish people in the 20th Century. Rick links an excellent retrospective on Begin's career as prime minister, by Elliot Jager, in the Jerusalem Post.
