Modern Maccabees

Modern Maccabees

A powerful speech by Battalion Commander Boaz Schwartz before his soldiers entered combat in Gaza. He reminds them (and us) of the IDF soldiers’ important place in history, following in the footsteps of the Maccabees and other Jewish heroes, and a future source of inspiration for their descendants. When my daughter saw me editing this video, she said, “He’s my friend’s dad, you know! She was in my class in high school.” I’m moved that this is the kind of idealistic heroes that we and our children live amongst. Shabbat shalom and Chanukah Sameach🕎🇮🇱💌
