Born in Jerusalem in 1922, the son of an ardently Labor Zionist family, Rabin completed his schooling at the Kadoorie Agricultural High School with distinction. He served as IDF Chief of Staff after two decades of Israeli military service in the IDF that followed seven years of service in the Palmach, the elite strike force of the pre-state Haganah underground defense organization. Rabin had a long military and diplomatic career; it culminated in the signing of the Oslo Accords with PLO chairman Yasser Arafat, a document that led to the creation of the Palestinian Authority and all that has followed since.
