Humanitarian IDF Soldier: Hen Mazzig

Guest Lecturer:  Hen Mazzig 

7.30pm Sunday 18 April

Hen Mazzig is an Israeli writer, a columnist for the Jewish Journal, and a speaker who has inspired thousands around the world with his story. He is an energetic activist and an advocate for his people. As the son of Mizrahi Jewish refugees from Iraq and North Africa (Berber Jews from Tunisia), Hen has a unique and important voice in today’s discussions, sharing his family’s story as part of the 850,000 Jewish refugees from the Middle East and North Africa. Hen served in the IDF for almost five years as an openly gay commander. During his service as a lieutenant in the COGAT unit, he worked as an intermediary between the Israeli Defense Forces (the IDF), the Palestinian Authority, the UN, and many non-governmental organizations that operate in the West Bank. His unit oversaw the construction of medical facilities, schools, environmental projects, roads, water-related infrastructure, and undertook security coordination with the Palestinian Security Forces.

Hen has a proven track record of creating dialogue where it seems impossible, building  relationships, friendships, and changing hearts and minds not simply by sharing the truth about Israel and the history of the region, but by being a voice for justice and peace for diverse groups and peoples.

This program will be by Zoom only.
