IDF Colonel Bentzi Gruber to Speak at Keter Torah

This Sunday, August 7, following the 9 a.m. minyan at Keter Torah, Colonel Bentzi Gruber will present a multimedia presentation on “Ethics in the Field,” a behind-the-scenes look at the Israel Defense Force’s daily efforts to both ensure the country’s security and uphold one of the most rigorous military codes of ethics in the world today.

Col. Bentzi Gruber is vice commander (reserves) of Division 252, an armored division of 20,000 soldiers. He has established internet startups, been a real estate developer and initiated biotech research. He is founder of “Chesed In The Field,” a non-profit that brings together IDF reservists and chronically ill and disabled children for special events throughout the year, instilling the values of community and social responsibility in the hearts of thousands of soldiers. Col. Gruber also established “Ethics in the Field” to shatter myths and present the facts missing in today’s discussion of Israeli counter-terrorism.

Congregation Keter Torah is located at 600 Roemer Avenue, in Teaneck.

 

Shashi Ishai to Hold Benefit for Terror Victim at Chabad of Teaneck

On Monday, August 15, at 8 p.m., Shashi Ishai, formerly of Chabad of Teaneck, will hold a benefit at Chabad of Teaneck for the Israeli terror victim Ayala (bat Rut) Shapira.

About a year ago, while returning to her home with her father in the Shomron, Ayala’s car was firebombed by a molotov cocktail. She survived, but 80 percent of her face and upper body were left unrecognizable.

For every “chai” donation, Ishai’s book “Ask Avigail,” a compilation of funny stories from her blog, will be given away.

Please RSVP to [email protected].

Chabad of Teaneck is located at 513 Kenwood Place.
