J Street staff and the J Street community are deeply saddened to learn that former Israeli Foreign Ministry Director General and Mossad official David Kimche has passed away. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends, and colleagues. We have lost a truly great man. David is entirely irreplaceable. He was a real leader, both through his work in the intelligence community and his unshakeable, realistic, and forward-thinking commitment to promoting peace between Israel and its neighbors. David's memory will always be a blessing for the J Street community and an inspiration for our ongoing efforts to achieve real peace and security for Israel through a two-state solution.
