(That's not me.)
That's what happens when you appoint 18-year-old girls as army commanders!
Anything in the instruction of new recruits about the Damascus blood libel and other 19th century massacres of the Jewish community of the Levant? The problem with basing the case for Israel on what Europe did to the Jews is that nothing that Europe did can counter the response, "yes Europe did nasty things to the Jews, but why should the 'innocent' Palestinians pay the price?" Calling attention to what Islam did to the Jews, particularly in the Levant, demonstrates that the Palestinians are not so innocent.
Very amusing tale. I was less amused by "surprised my wife and I".
I wonder how many kids are noled in that ambatya
This is funny.
Is your daughter ok with this being written? She may find it embarrassing.
I doubt that any man would think that אמבטיה means מקלחת or אמבטיה literally. It takes a woman to lead 15 soldiers to hide in shower stalls. This isn't very funny.
I'm curious. Why don't you have your own IDF tales? Why don't you volunteer/serve - at least in miluim?
Glad you acknowledge that..... דרכו של איש לעשות מלחמה ולא אשה
Gosh why would you embarrass her publicly in reporting this mishap to your readership?? It wasn't bad enough for her the first time to be a laughingstock?
A truly enjoyable posting. I'm reminded about when I was drafted into the IDF when I was 40 years old!! This was, of course, back in the 80s when we did miluim until age 55. We were all olim from many different countries. I remember our mifaked, an 18 to 20 year old officer originally from France. He had difficulties dealing with all of us "older" folks while we had difficulty taking that young commander seriously. I definitely understand why your daughter isn't addressed by her name.
Waiting for a response to the article in Mispacha Magazine by it's publisher Eli Paley on the topic of Judicial reform.
I think you and your readership will get a kick out of the following https://www.theyeshivaworld.com/?p=2172902
Starting off in a command position? She has a bright future!
Why is she not allowed to let them know that she knows English fluently and why are they not allowed to know her name?
There is nothing as funny as idf service. Nothing.
Have a niece dentist who just did basic training to work as an army dentist. Basic training is as full of strange tales as fleas on a dog's back.
