Interview: Joshua Flaster & Michael Domb

Israel’s military is unique. How so? For one, it is a civilian army, which means 18-year-old men and women are required to serve their country through military service right out of high school. Israel also has a slightly different focus on the way they defend themselves. Unlike the United States who has allies on their borders, Israel is constantly defending their homeland from their neighbors. Inside their military, they also have a unique program where Jewish people from all over the world can come and serve in the military. They are called “Lone Soldiers.”

Recently Chris was able to sit down  with Michael Domb and Joshua Flaster from the Lone Soldier Center. Michael and Joshua will share their experience being lone soldiers themselves and how they are helping these men and women from all over the world thrive in a foreign land where they’ve chosen to serve.

Apples of Gold: Boldness in Persecution

Zvi returned from a military operation and was thankful to God that he survived. It was truly a miracle he came back alive. When he returned to work many there made comments that they wished he had died instead of his fellow soldiers because as a Christian they did not consider him a Jew like themselves. Zvi’s response is one of love, compassion, and boldness. Listen how God used him in front of his coworkers.

Zvi’s story is available in Elwood McQuaid’s book, “Zvi: The Miraculous Story of Triumph over the Holocaust,” available at our online store.

More stories from Zvi are also available in his book, “The Best of Zvi,” available at our online store.


The Friends of Israel Today and Apples of Gold theme music was composed and performed by Jeremy Strong.
