Decorated Israeli one-armed squad commander speaks at RSF Chabad event

"A Soldier's Tale of Struggle and Perseverance - Israel's OneArmed Warrior"
(Jon Clark)

The Chabad Jewish Center of RSF recently presented an event featuring the world’s only one-armed special forces sharp shooter, the honorable Izzy Ezagui.

Ezagui, a decorated squad commander in the Israel Defense Forces , is the only soldier in the world who lost an arm in combat and returned to the battlefield. In 2011, former Israeli President Shimon Peres awarded him one of Israel’s highest military honors. While he continues to serve in an elite unit in the reserves, Ezagui delivers inspirational talks across the United States and internationally. Ezagui also raises millions of dollars for hospitals, rehabilitation programs, and other charities. Online:
