This very moment I am watching television. Hatikvah, Israel's national anthem, is sung at the manifestation in memory of the life and murder of Yitzhak Rabin z"l. According to the police more than 150,000 people were at the Rabin Square and in the surrounding streets. Ahinoam Nini's performance of "We'll touch the dream" was beautiful, as was the speech by Rabin's son Yuval, who is not known for his eloquence and who until this evening never gave such a public speech. Layla tov, and shavua tov.
