Panim el Panim Sefer Torah Project for Paratroop Training Base

Sefer Torah Project for Paratroop Training Base Inscribing on the parchment and on our hearts To all friends of the IDF and Panim el Panim Baruch Hashem, we have received an antique Torah scroll from the Hewlett community of New York. The scroll is currently being proofread and requires extensive repairs, and with Hashem’s help, will soon be installed at Machane Eitan, the IDF Paratroop Brigade Training Base. The Torah scroll will be dedicated to the memory of three paratroop officers killed during IDF operations in Lebanon, and in memory of Rabbi Binyamin Eisner ztz”l, a revered teacher of Torah to officers and soldiers.

The Officers:

Major Meir Kanishbach, HY"D son of Shmuel (z”l) and Pnina, from Netanya. Killed in 1980 - 5740, leading the vanguard forces during a defensive operation.

Major Dudu Cohen, HY"D, son of Mordechai and Simi (z”l), from Dimona. Killed in 1982 - 5742 while leading a mop-up force during Operation Peace for Galilee.

Major Rami Ben Zvi Hachmon, HY"D, son of Amnon (z”l) and Leah, from Kibbutz Ein Harod Meuhad. Killed while leading an ambush unit in 1986 - 5747.

Rabbi Benny Eisener, HY"D
