Parents of Lone Soldier Flown to Israel to See Their Injured Son


The parents of Moshe Hirt, an American soldier who was wounded during Operation Protective Edge in Gaza, were able to fly to Israel to visit their son thanks to El Al, Israel’s national airline, and the head of Moshe’s yeshiva. Hirt, from New Jersey, was a student at the Birkat Moshe hesder yeshiva in Ma’aleh Adumim.

The head of the yeshiva, Gilad Gross, recalled what happened after Hirt was wounded in a conversation with Arutz Sheva on Thursday.
