Photo Friday: Your Father Was a Hero

This past weekend, the IDF lost an officer, Col. M, during a special operations mission in Gaza. And this week, Israeli President Reuven Rivlin visited Col. M's family, telling his grieving children that their father was "One of the bravest and most daring soldiers and commanders of the State of Israel. He lived the values he was brought up on: bravery, self-sacrifice, daring and determination." May his memory be a blessing. Shabbat shalom, friends.
