The Jewish Story Season 5

Episode 6: Yitzchak Rabin’s First Term

When most people think about Yitzchak Rabin as Israel’s Prime Minister they focus on the Oslo Accords and his tragic murder, but many are unaware that Rabin’s assassination ended his second term. Here is an episode on his opening round as Prime Minister, when Rabin’s choice as the first native-born Israeli to head the government opened a new era. We will see him face down US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger on the international scene, but in the end, a handful of religious idealists will force him to compromise on the domestic front.
