Channel 7 recently published statistics about graduates of the IDF’s 55th officer course. A total of 27.5% are mechina (pre-military leadership academy) alumni, 13% are yeshiva graduates, and 8.1% completed a service year program. A total of 60.6% of course graduates are alumni of youth movements.
In other news, two out of the nine Spokesperson’s Unit cadets on the parade ground of Training Base 1 last week were alumnae of the twelfth class of Mechinat Tzahali: Yarona Abrams and Chen Maximov. Eden-Tal Sassi, an alumna of Tzahali’s tenth class, presented Chen with her officer pin.
Good luck! We wish you rewarding and meaningful service in the officer corps!
