ESRA mourns the death of Nehama Rivlin, wife of Israel's President, Reuven Rivlin.
Admired by all for her humanity, humility, and her grace, Israel's First Lady devoted her time to advocacy for women, the disabled and the disadvantaged, who all mourn her loss. She was never judgmental, always to the point, and full of humor.
