  Israel Legal Mission - Day 3


Day 3 was an important day as we visited the 2 most important institutions of modern day Israel, the Knesset and the Supreme Court.

We started the day hearing from a leading judge dealing with family issues where Israel has a very different system than in Canada but yet look out to ensure women and children are protected.

We got a briefing from general Bentzi Gruber  who leads a large division of the army about the ethics of war and the sensitivities drilled into each soldier. Incredible how driven it is by the values of Torah, as one American general said, "Israel is 15 years ahead of all countries." 

We met with Avi Dichter, who is at the forefront of Israel's foreign relations and the chair of Knesset Foreign Affairs Committee, and previous Head of Shabak. He spoke about the political situation and the means Israel has to deal with it legally and politically.

We then met with Judge Neil Hendel, an American born judge, who described how he brings the wisdom of Torah to craft many of his rulings.

What an interesting day!
