Mazel Tov to two lone IDF soldiers, Moshe Rosen and Helen Marcus, on their engagement.
Helen and Moshe are both new Olim from the U.S. They met in Jerusalem.
A lone soldier is someone who serves in the IDF without benefit of having parents living in Israel. It can be exceptionally difficult experience.
The photo was taken at the Lone Soldier Center in Memory of Michael Levin in Jerusalem, an organization that provides lone soldiers with a home away from home.
Helen Marcus also happens to be the daughter of JewishPress.com senior correspondent Lori Lowenthal Marcus.
