Community Shabbat Dinner: From Auschwitz to the IDF

‏‏‏‏‏‏‏‏‏‏‏‏‏‏‏‏Gansburg Program Guide 2018-201915.jpg

For Leibel Mangel, being the son of a Chabad Rabbi and the grandson of one of the youngest survivors of Auschwitz, serving in the IDF was not a matter of if, but rather when.

Leibel, at the age of 19, left his home in Cincinnati, to enlist in the IDF. He served as a machine gunner in the Kfir Brigade, where he took part in numerous high profile anti-terror operations.

Even after his military discharge, Leibel has continued his service by fighting for Israel in both the mainstream and social media, and in cities throughout the USA. Leibel was recently nominated for a Jewish People’s Choice Award.
