Document about Yitzhak Navon's personal and political life

For many, Yitzhak Navon embodied the values of national unity and solidarity. As we unravel his life’s story, it becomes clear that his aspiration to unite every strand of the delicate Jewish tapestry spread over the diaspora and encompassing Jews in Israel from over one hundred different countries was a common theme throughout his career.

This yearning was fueled by an unrelenting dedication to preserving the culture and unique characteristics of every Jewish community and the Sephardic community in particular.
