Shimon Peres

Shimon Peres was a leading figure on Israel's political landscape for as long as the Jewish state itself has existed in modern times. He held almost every public office, including those of prime minister and president, although he never led a party to an election victory. Born Szymon Perski in Wiszniew, Poland (now Visnieva, Belarus), on 2 August 1923, Shimon Peres was the son of a lumber merchant. His parents were not Orthodox Jews but the young Shimon was taught the Talmud (compendium of Jewish law and commentaries) by his grandfather and became a strong adherent of the faith. In 1934 the family moved to the British Mandate of Palestine (Peres' father had emigrated two years earlier) and settled in Tel Aviv. Mr Peres died in a hospital near Tel Aviv early on Wednesday, with his family at his bedside.
