In a moving lecture that doesn’t leave anyone dry-eyed, Major General (Res.) Doron Almog describes how his son, Eran, the boy who never spoke, who never called him “dad,” who never made eye contact, became the greatest teacher of his life, the boy for whom Maj. Gen. Almog concluded his army service in order to lead the battle of his life – the battle for a better world, to build a utopian society.
Produced by Gilad Adin http://www.giladadin.com/ Maj. Gen. Almog was the recipient of the Israel Prize in 2016. The highest honor granted by the State of Israel was awarded to MG Almog for his outstanding military service and for his leadership in establishing an innovative, groundbreaking social initiative, which provides love and optimal quality of life to the weakest members of society, while breaking down the barriers of stereotypes, and maximizing inclusion. MG Almog was the first Israeli soldier on the ground in the daring operation to rescue 105 hostages in Entebbe in 1976.
