When it comes to Israel’s security, the country can only rely on itself, Knesset member Yuli Edelstein said on Sunday at the Begin Symposium kick-off event in Jerusalem.

The first ever live symposium honoring the late Prime Minister Menachem Begin, the event drew several hundred people to discuss issues of “Securing the Nation”—as the symposium was called. It also celebrated Begin’s life and legacy.

“More and more people are starting to realize the relevance of Begin to our modern lives,” said Begin Center President Herzl Makov at the start of the evening. “As prime minister, he designed Israel anew, and the Israel we know today—for good and for bad—is a result of his actions.”
