The annual rally marking the anniversary of the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin will not be held this November for the first time in 16 years.

The late prime minister’s daughter, Dalia Rabin, chairman of the Yitzhak Rabin Center, said Monday that the center would not hold the event this year because of financial constraints and the yearly decrease in attendees. She was confirming a report in the daily Maariv newspaper.

Tel Aviv’s Rabin Square, the site of the event, is being renovated and could not have hosted this year.

The center is considering other kinds of ceremonies to honor Rabin’s memory, The Jerusalem Post reported.

An icon on the center’s website for 16th Yitzhak Rabin Memorial Day events leads to an error message.
