It is with great admiration for the courageous leadership and tremendous spirit of my dear friend, Yitzhak Rabin, that I congratulate American Friends of Rabin Medical Center on paying tribute to him through your continued support of the medical center bearing his name. The Rabin Medical Center has had a long and distinguished history of providing care to the people of Israel and beyond. By supporting the medical center and its commitment to “humanity without borders,” you are helping ensure that first-rate medical care continues to be available to all those in need, regardless of background.

- President William Jefferson Clinton
