Yom HaDin HaSheni

Tomorrow is Yom Sayerot, the gatekeeper to all the gibushim [field tests] for the most elite units (Matkal, Shaldag, Shayetet, Unit 669, etc) in the IDF. The last week, with the flurry of holidays, fast days and late night slichot prayers, may not have been the most ideal way to prepare for the six hours of physical tests--think sprints and sandbag runs--that await me tomorrow evening. Or perhaps the week of spiritual overdosing, with the grand finale of Yom Kippur, is exactly what I will need come tomorrow.

Either way, Yom HaDin II awaits in less than twenty-four hours.


  1. Remember when I promised you I would leave you comments because you were sad that no one did? Do you regret that yet?

    Your gonna do awesome. You'll push yourself until your the best, because that is your way.

  2. regret it? not now and not ever.

    as for the potential awesome results, check the next post in twelve hours or so.

  3. Hello!

    I stumbled across your blog through a web search, and I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed reading it. I'm just beginning the process of joining a garin, and your words and experiences have been nothing short of inspirational for me. I look forward to learning more about your experiences - experiences that I hope will mirror my own in the near future.

    Good luck to you and G-d bless.

  4. See Sammy, now you're inspiring the next generation.
