Dr. Israel Katz, former welfare minister, passes away

Published: 10.29.10, 19:25 / Israel News

Dr. Israel Katz, who served as minister of labor and social welfare in Menachem Begin's government between the years 1977-1981, died of a lengthy illness at the age of 82 Friday. Katz also served as chairman of the National Insurance Institute and was one of the founders
of the Hebrew University's School of Social Work.


His son, Efra, told Ynet, "My father dealt all his life with welfare and society, and was one of the most influential people in Israel in this field. It was the most important thing to him. I want him to be remembered as a great Zionist." Katz will most likely be buried in Jerusalem on Monday. (Ronen Medzini)
