Israeli Speaks on Ethics Training in the IDF

IDF Sergeant (Res.) Nadav Weinberg  will speak on “Ethics and Israel: Gilad Shalit and the Israel Defense Forces” in Boulder on November 30 and in Lakewood on December 1.

Weinberg was born in Israel, moved to the United States as a child, and joined the Israel Defense Forces after his graduation from Case Western Reserve University in 2008. He was trained in the Orev Special Forces in the Nachal Brigade. His unit’s primary job was to prevent terrorist attacks throughout Israel.

While sitting in an ethics seminar during Special Forces training, he realized that the information he was learning was not common knowledge. Since that moment, Weinberg has been determined to share what he has learned with people across the U.S., especially students.

Weinberg now travels to college campuses, as well as other destinations, to educate people about the ethical codes of the Israel Defense Forces through interactive scenarios, video clips and most importantly, sharing the facts.

Weinberg will speak at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, November 30, at CU Chabad, located at 909 14th Street in Boulder, and at 6:30 pm on Thursday, December 1, at the School of Music at Colorado Christian University, located at 9200 West Ellsworth Avenue in Lakewood. His talks will explain the high ethical standards practiced by the IDF and will also explore the ethics of the captors of recently returned IDF soldier Gilad Shalit and of the Israeli government in bringing about Shalit’s release.

An article about Weinberg’s appearances on college campuses across the United States recently appeared in the Jerusalem Post.

Weinberg’s appearances in the Boulder-Denver area are sponsored by Stand By Israel, in conjunction with Action Israel, Americans Against Terrorism, and Stand With Us. CU Chabad is co-sponsoring the Boulder appearance.

Both events are open to the public at no charge. For more information: mail@standbyisrael.com
