Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County deeply mourns the passing of Shimon Peres (z”l), former prime minister and president of Israel. He was a beloved icon of a strong, secure Israel and a champion of peace.

Peres was a founding leader of the State of Israel, participating in the nation’s birth in 1948 as well as its growth, security and success. His work as the key architect of the Oslo Peace Accords, for which he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, represented his inspiring dedication to protecting our Jewish homeland.

We shared Peres' commitment to caring for our global Jewish family. He built and nurtured a deep and unique relationship with Jewish people everywhere, meeting regularly with Jewish community members from the Palm Beaches during Federation missions across the decades and even warmly welcoming them to his home.

May the memory of Shimon Peres be for a blessing, and may his family find peace and comfort during this difficult time.
