Tommy Lapid

Yosef "Tommy" Lapid was a Serbian-born Israeli radio and television presenter, journalist and government minister known for his sharp tongue and acerbic wit. Lapid headed the secular-liberal Shinui party from 1999 to 2006, he fiercely opposed the ultra-Orthodox political parties and sought to exclude any religious observance from the legal structure of the Israeli State. Lapid was born in Serbia, to a family of Hungarian Jewish descent, his family deported to the Budapest Ghetto. His father was deported to a concentration camp. Lapid and his mother were rescued by Raoul Wallenberg in Budapest, they survived the war and moved to Israel in 1948 where he worked at the Hungarian language Israeli paper Uj Kelet with Rudolf Kasztner. After serving as a radio operator in the Israel Defense Forces between 1950 and 1953, Lapid graduated with a law degree from Tel Aviv University in 1957, he was married to an acclaimed novelist. They had three children, their son, Yair Lapid, is the chairman of Yesh Atid party, which became the second biggest party in the 2013 Israeli elections, was a columnist and television host.

A daughter, Merav, is a clinical psychologist. Their oldest daughter, was killed in a car accident in 1984. Lapid started out as a journalist for the Israeli Hungarian-language newspaper Új Kelet, he was hired by the mainstream daily Maariv, where he became an influential publicist, went on to become director-general of the Israel Broadcasting Authority and chairman of the Cable TV Union. He was the founding editor of Israeli women's magazine At, as well as a successful playwright. In the 1990s Lapid was a regular guest on the political talk show Popolitika aired on Channel 1 which turned into a shouting match. Lapid was awarded the Sokolov Award, Israel's top award in journalism, in 1998, for his weekly radio show. In the late 1990s, Lapid joined Avraham Poraz's Shinui party, which boosted the party's standing in the Israeli political scene. Lapid became party chairman and Shinui won six seats in the 1999 elections, with Lapid entering the Knesset for the first time. In the 2003 elections the party ran on a secularist platform and won 15 seats, making it the third largest in the Knesset after Likud and Labour.

Shinui was invited to join the government of Ariel Sharon and Lapid was appointed Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Justice. It was suggested that Israel's pro-Serbian position in 1999, was a result of the Serbian population's history of saving Jews during the holocaust, personal memories of which were still present among older Israeli politicians serving in government at the time such as Lapid. Tension between Shinui and Likud grew when the ultra-Orthodox party Agudat Yisrael was brought into the coalition. Shinui could not implement many of its electoral promises, such as instituting civil marriage, a dispute erupted over state aid to religious institutions; as a result, Shinui quit the coalition in December 2004. In late March 2005, Lapid voted in favor of the budget in exchange for minor concessions in order to keep the government from falling, liable to lead to early elections and impede the implementation of the disengagement plan. In Shinui's primary elections held shortly before the 2006 elections, Lapid retained the party leadership.

However, his deputy Poraz lost second place on the list. In the ensuing crisis and several other Shinui MKs left the party and founded Hetz. Lapid left Shinui two weeks after the vote and announced his support for Poraz's new party, but chose not to be involved in the new party's leadership, instead serving as a figurehead. In the elections, he was allocated the symbolic 120th place on the Hetz list, but the party failed to win a seat. On July 2006, Lapid was appointed Advisory Board Chairman of Yad Vashem, the Holocaust Martyrs' and Heroes' Remembrance Authority, a role he called "a sacred duty", he appeared on Council of an Israeli television program on Israel 10 channel. He hosted his own radio program on Reshet Bet, he was a chairman of the Israel Chess Society and served as an honorary member of the Raoul Wallenberg Foundation. Lapid was hospitalized at Ichilov Hospital in Tel Aviv in serious condition on 30 May 2008, he died on 1 June 2008, aged 76, after a battle with cancer. In March 2011, street Nova 30 in Veternik, a suburb of Novi Sad, was renamed to ulica Tomija Josefa Lapida.
