As Operation Protective Edge moves forward with a ground invasion of Gaza, dozens of ISEF’s scholars are putting on their uniforms and reporting to military reserve duty. We are grateful for their sacrifice and continue to offer support to all our student-soldiers.
Chagi Mastbaum, ISEF scholar and Mechanical Engineering major at Ort Braude College, is fulfilling his military reserve duty as an Officer for Operation Protective Edge. Chagi is a Dean’s List student with high marks, and an active volunteer in his community, tutoring and mentoring youth at ISEF’s learning centers and college preparatory program in the north. This week, Chagi thanked ISEF for its support, which he credits as having a tremendous impact on his academic success and his drive to excel.
We pray for Chagi’s safe return and for the safety of all our scholars, bravely defending Israel.
