There was an excessive amount of praise between the military and civilians at a gala dinner on Dec. 13 at The Plaza for the American Friends of the Open University of Israel.
Upon receiving the organization’s Yigal Alon Award, Gen. (ret.) Shaul Mofaz earned the admiration of the gold-plated audience for his accomplishments in the IDF and current service in the Knesset.
Mofaz turned to Ingeborg Rennert, president of the American Friends, and declared, “As an old soldier I salute you for your support of one of the best educational systems in Israel.”
