Sponsored by the Brotherhood, the goal of the World Wide Wrap is to help revitalize and reinvigorate the age-old tradition of wearing tefillin. Rabbi Adam and Cantor Cohen will be on hand to help you learn and there will be tefillin sets available to borrow. Following the 9 a.m. service, there will be a festive brunch and guest speaker, Gadi Ezra, who will speak on the dilemmas of modern warfare.
Selected by Forbes Magazine as one of the most influential leaders in Israel under the age of 30, Gadi Ezra holds an unparalleled perspective on war – as both a human rights attorney and a soldier in the Israeli Special Forces. Drawing from his personal experience as well as his background as a human rights lawyer, Gadi examines the complexities of applying the laws of warfare in actual combat, illustrating modern challenges using first-hand experiences. Gadi’s lecture exemplifies the difficult dilemmas soldiers face in modern warfare.
