A friend of mine was sworn into the army on Thursday. The ceremony took place at the site of an important battle in the 1967 Six Day War, Ammunition Hill, in Northern Jerusalem. Here are some pictures:

Soldiers stand in formation during the ceremony

Soldiers are given a gun and a Tanach –
a worldly weapon and a uniquely Jewish “weapon”

Soldiers March In

Commanders salute next to guns and Tanachs

Soldiers shout, “Ani Matzhir” – I affirm/declare (the term “swear” is not used in the religious Nachal Chareidi unit)

Here’s an American getting his gun and Tanach in the Israeli army

Marching Away

I guess we’ll see you soon burning down some Shul.

I actually liked the “marching away”, I hope far away from me.

‘An American’? I don’t think so. What uneducated drivel.
