“We are so privileged to be in one room with heroism, with courage. We remember that we are all here because of them and their colleagues, generations of Israeli veterans and soldiers that keep us and our traditions alive. They do it for the sake of 4,000 years of Jewish life, not just in the past, but for the next 4,000 years.”
