9 November, 2015: Yitzhak Navon, who served as the 5th President of the State of Israel, from 1978 to 1983, passed away on Saturday, November 7, 2015 at the age of 94. He was laid to rest on Mt. Herzl in Jerusalem on Sunday, November 8, 2015.

During his Presidency, he strove to act as a bridge between Israel's ethnic groups, religious and secular, Sephardim and Ashkenazim, left and right, Jews and Arabs.

The Israeli public paid its respects to the late President at the President's residence in Jerusalem.

President Reuven Rivlin said: "Yitzhak Navon, the State of Israel’s fifth president, created a new style and practice for the presidency. Yitzhak was a noble man, unceremoniously aristocratic, a president who came from the people, and whom the people greatly loved and appreciated. Throughout his life, Yitzhak walked along with the State of Israel. Time after time, he was found at the significant crossroads in the country’s history. Always in a position of significance."

The State of Israel has declared three days of national mourning due to his sad demise.

A Condolence book has opened at the Embassy and can be signed tomorrow between 11:00-17:00.
