Tamar Eshel, a former Israeli lawmaker and diplomat, passes away on her 102nd birthday.

Eshel was born in London in 1920, but grew up in Haifa, when her parents came to Mandatory Palestine shortly thereafter.

Once the Jewish state was established in 1948, she joined Israel’s Foreign Ministry, kicking off a successful diplomatic career that led her to work as part of the Israeli delegation at the United Nations.

In 1977, she was elected to the Knesset as part of the HaMa’arakh (The Alignment) faction. She served until the 1984 elections.
