Biography

Rehavam Ze'evi was born in 1926 in Jerusalem. He joined the Palmach in 1942, and served in the Israeli Defence Forces after the creation of the State of Israel. During his youth, Ze'evi went to school in Givat HaShlosha. One night he shaved his head, wrapped a towel round his waist and entered the food hall. The similarity to Mohandas Gandhi earned him Gandhi as his nickname, which stuck with him for the rest of his life. The nickname is also attributed to a long Arab dress he wore during his underground days in Palmach.[2][3]Ze'evi had five children, Palmach, Sayar, Masada, Tze'ela and Arava.[4] Palmach is also a member of Moledet and competed with Binyamin Elon for the party's leadership.
