David Ben-Gurion

David Ben-Gurion (born David Grün; 1886 –1973) was the primary national founder of the State of Israel and the country’s first Prime Minister.
He was the preeminent leader of the Jewish community in British Mandate Palestine from 1935 until the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, which he led until 1963 with a short break in 1954-55.
He stepped down from office in 1963 and retired from political life in 1970. He then moved to Sde Boker, a kibbutz in the Negev desert, where he lived until his death.
Posthumously, Ben-Gurion was named one of Time magazine's 100 Most Important People of the 20th century.
