Last night, I hosted a Tzahal Shalom Rivertowns parlor event at my home. Vice President of Integrated Marketing, Barbra Schulman, and Account Director, Alanna Leff, were among the 30+ guests. Tzahal Shalom brings Israeli soldiers and reservists to the US to meet Americans and share their experiences defending Israel. Last night attendees heard very personal testimonies from three reservists ranging from descriptions of their rigorous training to stories of secret missions that stopped terrorist attacks. There were tears, there was laughter, but mainly, there was humanity.

It was incredible to hear first hand accounts of such personal work. Israel is a tiny country and every soldier knows the very people living in the precise location that he or she might be tasked to protect. It’s a big responsibility with loved one’s lives on the line. The soldiers’ mission here is to meet as many Americans as possible to share their first hand accounts and to learn from their military counterparts here. Part of their packed schedule includes a visit to West Point Military Academy.

There will be another larger parlor event at Temple Beth Abraham at 25 Leroy Avenue in Tarrytown, NY on Thursday evening. It is free to attend and you can learn more by clicking here.
