Shabbat Evening Service Celebrating Israel – The IDF: Melting Pot or Salad Bowl?

Friday, April 28 at 8:00 PM

The IDF’s goal is to protect Israel. Throughout the recruitment process, the IDF attempts to match each person to a job that fits his or her skills. What happens as a result is that every army base has a diverse group of people from all over the country.

Does that create a melting pot where everyone abandons their individuality? Or does it create a salad bowl of very different people living and working together for the common good? Lior Doron, our own TRS Shlicha/Israel Emissary who served in the IDF will share with us her thoughts and experiences.

“Beneath the Helmet: From High School to the Home Front”: A Film Viewing and Discussion with IDF Soldiers

Sunday, April 30 at 2:00 PM

This coming-of-age story follows the journey of five Israeli high school graduates who are drafted into the IDF to defend their country. At the age of 18, away from their homes, families, and friends, these young adults undergo a demanding journey that reveals the essence of who they are…and who they want to be.

Following the film, several active-duty and former IDF soldiers will share their reactions to the film, stories of their experiences and answer questions. The film and discussion are offered at no charge; but, please RSVP so that we can have an accurate headcount.

RSVP here (limited space; RSVP now!)
