Remember the Soldiers on Chanukah – Second Night

Chanukah at the AZM

Light a Candle — Wear a Dogtag — Remember the Soldiers

Second Night: Ehud Goldwasser

On this second night, we keep in mind Ehud Goldwasser, captured by Hezbollah on July 12, 2006 in an incident that sparked the subsequent war in Lebanon. He had been married to his wife, Karnit, just 11 months before being shipped off for reserve duty, celebrating Karnit’s 30th birthday the week before his departure. Karnit, who was forced to celebrate her one-year wedding anniversary alone, traveled to the United States this fall to raise awareness about the plight of the abducted soldiers and advocate for help in ensuring their release.

Goldwasser, 32, from Nahariya, works in the Technion in environmental engineering. Nicknamed “Udi” by friends and family, Goldwasser lived in South Africa as a teenager. His parents are Shlomo and Mickey.
