This video clip features a brief interview with an Israeli soldier enrolled in the Hesder Program. His emotional statement speaks volumes of the value of military service for himself and his country.
Unique to the Israeli army is the Hesder Program, which combines Yeshiva study and military service. This particular yeshiva agenda provides formal scholastic education in Torah Talmud and halacha (law). If knowledge is power, then the blend of Yeshiva study and IDF service provides motivation and religious insight unequaled among the soldiers of the region.
The video in this presentation provides testimony as to the love of country, devotion to duty and pride in service of Israeli soldiers today.
