Golani Swearing-In Ceremony, Jan 2011
January 12, 2011.
After two months of grueling basic training, the fresh cadets of the Golani Brigade are the first cycle of recruits in more than 20 years to have their swearing-in ceremony before the Western Wall of the Great Temple in Jerusalem. Both the ceremony itself, and the location next to one of the most ancient and venerated sites in Israel, are very significant for these young men.
