Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of Israeli Presidents, in order of longevity. There are currently ten Presidents on the list, four of whom are living. The list is in descending order and is correct as of 27 December 2014. The longest-lived president is Yitzhak Navon (born 1921).

To account for the different number of leap days within the life of each president, two measures of longevity are given. The first is the number of whole years the president lived, and the number of days past their last birthday. The second list the total number of days lived by the president, accounting for differing numbers of leap years within the lifespans of different presidents.
