Religious IDF Officers

Filed under: Army,Israel — lonelymanofcake @ 8:27 am

Here is a fascinating, albeit concise, list of the ten most highly regarded religious officers in the IDF. Ma’ariv has run a series of articles in the past few days (like this one) on religious soldiers in the IDF. This is either apologetics or what looks like a sincere attempt to “check-up” on the religious sector in the IDF after what many expected would be a “breach of trust” between the religious community and the IDF in the aftermath of the Gaza disengagement.

  1. Would have enjoyed it if I could read Hebrew better, but had to laugh that although I failed to find any English translation of the site, I did hit upon a very targeted ‘local’ English ad in the shape of Tesco!! If you know of an English version or translation etc, be interested in reading it.

  2. Thanks for your comment. As for an English translation, unfortunately, the article is from the daily Ma’ariv, which does not produce an English web-edition (unlike Yediot Aharonot, which does).
    I would translate it myself, but I’m short on time. Perhaps next time I link to Hebrew articles, I’ll try to excerpt a small translation.

  3. Appreciate that, but don’t stress – the gist is enough to enjoy 🙂
