Remembering Rafi Eitan – A hero of the Jewish people and the State of Israel

Official Statements

President of the Zionist Federation of Australia (ZFA), Jeremy Leibler:

“Rafi Eitan was a hero of the Jewish people and the State of Israel. His service did not begin or end with the capture of Eichmann. He fought in the pre-State Haganah and was injured in the war of independence in 1948.

He later served in a leadership capacity in Israeli Intelligence before being elected as a member of the Knesset. These are some of the known achievements of Rafi Eitan and are likely dwarfed by the many operations undertaken in secret that played a critical role in securing the safety of the State of Israel and diaspora Jewry.

We mourn his passing. Israel and the Jewish people need more Rafi Eitans.”
