Monday, April 28, 2014 at 7:00 pm
An inspiring group of active duty IDF (Israel Defense Forces) officers from Haifa, Boston's sister city in Israel, will be joining us as we commemorate Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day. The officers will share their personal stories about what it means to be an Israeli young adult placed in often impossibly difficult circumstances.
Topics will include:
Personal and familial connection to the Holocaust and its impact on military service
Comparing Israeli and Jewish identity
Moral dilemmas of war and IDF Code of Conduct
Being a leader and mentor for younger soldiers
Role of the IDF in making Israel an innovative "start-up nation"
