This past Tuesday, October 13, 2015 Yeshivah of Flatbush had the privilege of hosting Colonel Bentzi Gruber who came to share his experiences in the Israeli Defense Forces with our Juniors and Seniors. Col. Gruber gave us an insight on what it's like to be in the army and ethics on the battlefield. "Doubt, no doubt, no shoot" as Gruber put it, as he touched upon the situation of having a doubt in the battlefield. In addition to battlefield ethics he spoke about some missions he went on and what he did in certain situations. He even went over a few military strategies with us. The students were attentive and amazed by some of the insights he shared. Senior, Stephanie Dweck said "I think its important that we are educated in these types of things, especially at times like this, when we are under constant attack." Gruber ended his speech with some motivating words as he emphasized the meaning of achdut, unity. Even though we are miles away from our homeland our hearts and prayers are always with our brothers and sisters in Israel.
