The Israeli Defense Forces: The Human Aspects with Paul Liptz
The IDF fulfills many roles in Israel besides its obvious function as an army. Since its earliest stages in the pre-State period, the various Jewish militias recognized the need to educate the immigrants who would then take on central roles in 1948. The diverse population required a rapid immersion in new values and the army played an essential role in assisting in the nation-building process. In the session, Paul Liptz will include his own experiences in a field unit, the 1982 Lebanon War, and in the Education Unit dealing with a wide range of fascinating challenges.
