    unfortunately, too few Israeli yeshiva students have the same commitment.

  5. Beautiful! Kol hakavod to Lt. B who will hopefully inspire all Jewish young men (and women) to do army or national service for Israel which is every bit as much their country as those who have made aliyah.

  6. Bless you and keep you, your family must be so proud. Sincerely G v Haberland.

  7. Stuart Rosenthal says:

    Kol HaKavod to Lt. B and the IAF. Where would Israel and the diaspora be without you and the IDF?
