An evening with Yadin Gellman - survivor and hero of Oct. 7


February 16, 2024

Yadin Gellman

Actor and Oct. 7 hero, Yadin Gellman, will be at several Chabads in Central Florida to share his story, "The 12 Longest Hours of My Life."

Gellman grew up in Jerusalem during the second Intifada. The difficult experiences he endured, led him to become a combat soldier in the IDF's elite Sayeret Matkal unit. Gellman fought bravely in many battles and special operations until 2019 when he left the army and pursued a career in acting. 

On Oct. 7, 2023, during the Hamas massacre on Simchas Torah, Gellman was called as a reserves combat commander to rescue his fellow citizens and battle the terrorist who invaded his homeland. He fought vigorously in Kibbutz Kfar Aza and Kibbutz Be'eri. After 10 hours of intense fighting, Gellman and his friend were seriously injured. He pushed forward and survived. 

Ever since recovering, Gellman's passion and mission has been to retell his story and to unveil the harsh reality of that fateful day. 

Tickets are $20 per person by Feb. 22 (early bird) and $25 after that date.

Gellman will be at Chabad of South Orlando, 7347 W. Sand Lake Rd, Orlando, on Wednesday, March 6, 7:30 p.m., and at Chabad of North Orlando, Nate's Shul, 1701 Markham Woods Rd., Longwood, on Thursday, March 7 at 7:30 p.m.
