Rivlin to Step into Presidential Role This Evening


President-elect Reuven Rivlin will formally begin his role as Israel’s tenth President on Wednesday evening, following a short inauguration ceremony at the Knesset.

The ceremony bidding farewell to current President Shimon Peres and inaugurating Rivlin will be shorter than usual, in light of the war in the south.
