President Reuven ‘Ruvi’ Rivlin paying final respects to Amos Oz, who passed away on Friday after a long battle with cancer.

“Not only were you not afraid to be in the minority opinion, you weren’t even afraid to be called a traitor – you wore that label as a badge of honor. I so much envied your ability to know Israeli society so deeply, that you could both criticize and love it at the same time,” said Rivlin.
