“Yosef Fought to Serve in a Combat Unit”

Emanuel Council Secretary Ido Meushar eulogized IDF soldier Yosef Fartuk of Emanuel, who was killed by a racket in the Eshkol region Tuesday. “Our Hareidi city is proud of our many IDF soldiers. Yosef fought to be assigned to an armored division, and was an excellent soldier slated to be trained as tank commander. His devotion to G-d was remarkable, as can be seen in his photo praying by his tank in his phylacteries. May his memory be blessed.”
