Combat reservist to speak at Ohev on Shavuot

 

Sergeant Benjamin Anthony

Sergeant Benjamin Anthony is a combat reservist in the Israel Defense Forces. Born in England, he experienced a brutal anti-Semitic attack that changed the course of his life. He and his brothers made aliyah and joined the IDF, defending Israel in every recent military campaign. After completing his military service, Sgt. Anthony founded Our Soldiers Speak to “separate fact from sensationalism, to distinguish between perception and reality, and to compare the media headlines to the truth.” He travels the English-speaking world to bring the “proud truth” of Israel’s front line battles to college campuses and communities.

On Thursday, May 16 at 11:30 a.m., Sgt. Anthony will be in Orlando speaking during the sermon slot of second day Shavuot services at Congregation Ohev Shalom (613 Concourse Pkwy S, Maitland). His speech will be open to the public.
