A friend of Robin's told her that if we send a wedding invitation to the White House, the President and First Lady will respond with a nice card, suitable for framing. So, we thought, since we have friends and family living in Israel, why not send an invitation to then Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin.
At the time, Rabin was working non-stop on the Middle East Peace Process, and received many threats on his life. We honestly did not expect him to respond to the wedding invitation, so you can imagine our surprise when we received a telephone telegram from him on the day of our wedding.
What we did not expect, however, was another response from Rabin, this one actually signed by him. The SHOCKER was the timing of the response: It was mailed TWO DAYS before his ASSASSINATION in Israel by a right-wing fanatic on November 4, 1995. WOW!!!
