The Yitzhak Rabin Center, located in Ramat Aviv next to the Tel Aviv University was an initiative of the Knesset in 1997, commemorating the late Prime Minister, his life and his legacy.
It is dedicated to reinforce democratic values, educational opportunities for all and promote tolerance and understanding among the many communities that comprise the State of Israel, by developing the leaders of the future of this complex nation.

Three Main Principles
The Center functions in the spirit of three principles:
Positioning Yitzhak Rabin as an exemplary model of responsible, fair and innovative leadership in the fields of civil society, security and the quest for peace;
Establishing a deep commitment to Israeli civil society based on respect, social cohesiveness, democratic values and the rule of law;
Advancing the well-being and unification of the Jewish people, in light of the danger of violent disagreement and internal conflict evidenced by the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin.
