Dear Mrs. Anfinsen,
It is with great sadness that I read of the passing of your dear husband, Christian Anfinsen z"1.
His passing means the loss of a great mind to humanity, and a great soul to the Jewish people. He will be sorely missed as a man of action and as a supporter and friend of Israel.
I will cherish the letter written by your late husband to the Nobel Committee, on my behalf. It is a memento of the tentative beginnings of the new era which he so strongly supported.
I am certain that the memorial ceremony to be held at John Hopkins University will honor his memory in the manner deserving of a man of his vision and commitment.
Israel shares your loss.
Sincerely yours,
Yitzhak Rabin
