RML meeting with Isuf Kravi Nov2014

Rosh Yeshiva, HaRav Yaacov Medan visiting Gush Isuf Kravi soldiers.

The Combat Intelligence Collection Corps is the newest of the IDF GOC Army Headquarters' five corps. They are tasked with collecting combat intelligence and maintaining observation networks. 

Army visits need to be coordinated through IDF command. When the commanding officer received a request for a visit from HaRav Medan, he asked that the Rosh Yeshiva speak with the entire battalion!

 

THE GREATEST TORAH IS THAT
WHICH IS CONNECTED TO REALITY

yeshiva-vs-rape-culture

- Rav Jonathan Ziring, a member of the Kollel Gavoah

When studying Talmud, it’s easy to be desensitized to the real-life implications of even the most sensitive issues — rape, for example.

So, as we at Yeshivat Har Etzion study the third chapter of the Talmudic tractate Ketubot, a chapter devoted to the crimes of rape and seduction, it’s easy to forget (especially when using the Hebrew terms) that “ones u-mefateh” are not just legal categories, but traumatic events that affect real people.

To combat that, my yeshiva arranged two presentations to ensure that I and the other students fully grasp what’s at stake in discussions of rape and sexual assault.

What's Happening in Israel


Visits to Har Etzion by the most elite instructional institution in the IDF - The IDF Command and Staff College ("Pum") - seem to have become a tradition. Brigadier General Commander Noam Tivon explains why: "I consider Rav Medan a leader, an ideological leader, but also a leader who seeks ways to build bridges, and therefore it is so important to hear him."
