Human Aspect of Israeli Leaders Revealed in Rare Photos

A new photography exhibit entitled "Prime Minister in Slippers" depicts Israel's leaders in informal setting. Examples include David Ben-Gurion in his home in the Negev, Yitzhak Rabin playing with his grandchildren in a swimming pool and Menachem Begin sitting in his living room reading a newspaper. The photos are intended to reveal a new human aspect of the people who lead Israel. The exhibit is being displayed at the Knesset and is a joint initiative of Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein and the Government Press Office, marking the GPO's 80 year anniversary.
