Rivlin says he’ll visit father’s grave

Reuven Rivlin tells Channel 2 that the first thing he’ll do now that he’s president-elect is pay a visit to his father’s grave.

Rivlin’s father, he says, was passed over to replace Yitzhak Ben-Tzvi, the second president of the state of Israel, in 1957. Instead, Ben-Tzvi ran unopposed and served another term.
