Salute the IDF’s ‘Special’ Soldiers ✡ “I Will Lift Up My Hand” – ISRAEL365

Behold, I will lift up My hand to the nations, and set up My banner to the people, and they shall bring your sons in their bosom, and your daughters shall be carried upon their shoulders.

הִנֵּה אֶשָּׂא אֶל גּוֹיִם יָדִי וְאֶל עַמִּים אָרִים נִסִּי וְהֵבִיאוּ בָנַיִךְ בְּחֹצֶן וּבְנֹתַיִךְ עַל  כָּתֵף תִּנָּשֶׂאנָה

Shabbat Inspiration

In an uplifting moment in IDF history, in 1949 the IDF reached the southernmost city of Eilat during the last operation of the War of Independence. The city fell into Israeli hands without a fight. When the soldiers realized they didn’t have an Israeli flag, they made one from a white sheet with two ink stripes and a Star of David taken from a first aid kit. This moment symbolized the end of the War of Independence and lives on as a symbol of Israel’s victory. Today the soldiers of the IDF are facing enemies on all sides and need our support more than ever.

Salute the IDF’s Most ‘Special’ Soldiers

All of the IDF’s precious soldiers are special,  but this group has overcome incredible obstacles in order to serve their country. We salute them!
