An IDF Soldier Provides An Elderly Woman At A Bus Stop With Shade


The following photo and posting was taken from the Facebook page of Bayit Yehudi party leader Naftali Bennet.

Below is a translation of the Hebrew posting, which provides an explanation of the photo.

Going down the Binyamina train station and this is the picture before me. You go to the station and wait for the next bus to come and see another woman, begin photographing and begin to become curious as to why. “Why did you take pictures? What is it?”

Briefly stated, the soldier noticed that the elderly woman had a newspaper to get some shade but she was growing tired, so he decided to take the paper to stand up and help her, even though he too is hot and was running late getting back to his base. He decided to wait with her until her bus comes to assist her and only then returning to his schedule.

I was left speechless and almost in tears. I don’t know who you are, but it is certain you are a wonderful person and we pray there are many like you. Thank you for the moment and elevating my Sunday. This is our army. These are out soldiers. Galit Achituv
