The Toby Press mourns the passing of Yehuda Avner, author of Toby’s bestseller, The Prime Ministers. Ambassador Avner served as political adviser and English speechwriter to Israeli Prime Ministers Rabin, Begin, Meir and Eshkol.  David Sable, close friend and son-in-law, says: “His legacy is the State of Israel, to which he dedicated his life to building. His gift to us…his words… which will live on and continue to inspire future generations around the world.”

The Toby Press will publish Avner’s novel, “The Ambassador” in the coming months.
