Shimon Peres, elder statesman and former Prime Minister and President of Israel, died yesterday. In July 1986 Peres was presented with Yeshiva University’s Centennial Medallion in a ceremony at the Knesset at the University’s historic Centennial Leadership Gathering in Israel.  He received an honorary doctorate from Yeshiva University at the Hanukkah Dinner in 1987.  Yehi Zikhro Barukh,  may his memory be for a blessing.
