The Forward publishes a letter former US president Barack Obama sent to Reuven Rivlin in May ahead of the end of his term.

In it, Obama said he “could always count on you as a source of advice and partnership.”

He expressed pride in “our shared efforts to strengthen our security partnership and the people-to-people ties between our two countries.”

He said Rivlin’s leadership had set an example for those who follow.
