This week we are joined by our colleague and friend Rabbi Avishai Magence. Avishai is the projects director at Koren and, in normal life, is responsible for overseeing all of the ongoing projects at Koren. Since October 7th Avishai has been serving in the IDF reserves as a platoon leader in the defence of Israel. The current war is the fourth in which Avishai has been called up to serve with his unit.
We spoke to Avishai about his experiences over the past several weeks and asked him to share his Torah al regel ahat.
