23 Years Since the Rabin Assassination Children of peace: Today, 23 years ago, Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated. The children in the Dialysis Unit in Ruth Rappaport Children’s Hospital at Rambam Health Care Campus marked the day with a moving activity – Israelis and Palestinians who are members of all religions, all of whom are treated in the unit. Together, the children decorated doves that had been prepared in advance by the teaching staff from the patient classes at Rambam – which is operated by the Bnei Zion, Rambam, Carmel Education Center – each child according to his or her abilities. Once the work was finished, the staff present the artwork in the framework of an exhibition entitled “I was Born to Peace”, which was presented in the unit. “Co-existence and living together are the daily reality in our hospital,” said the staff of the Pediatric Dialysis Unit at Rambam. “Together we face complicated problems, support one another and find a common language based on mutual respect and love for all people. This is the message that we send today from our activity, with the hope that it will reach as far as possible.” In the photos: The children’s artwork commemorating the Memorial Day for Yitzhak Rabin.
