different prime ministers. He also was Prime Minister for two and a half

of the Knesset and became Israel's President.
Seven years since becoming Israel's President, Peres emphasized
strengthening Israeli society and the connections between different types of
people. During his presidency, he did 752 tours and partook in meeting with
Israeli citizens from Metula to Eilat, during which he met thousands of
students in dozens of schools.
