2015 Scholar in Residence - Colonel (Res.) Dr. Bentzi Gruber
Colonel (Res.) Dr. Bentzi Gruber spent three days (Nov 3-5, 2014) touring the Greater Washington Area as our Scholar in Residence speaking to more than 700 members of our community exploring the moral and legal aspects of the war on terror including Operation Protective Edge and how the IDF applies ethics in real time during combat making life and death decisions in a matter of seconds. COL Gruber visited the US Naval Academy,Sixth & I Historic Synagogue, the World Bank, Catholic University Law School, Congregation Har Shalom, the JCC of Greater Washington, RAND Corporation and George Mason University. In each talk COL Gruber took the audience behind the scenes of the IDF's daily battle to both ensure the country's security and uphold one of the most rigorous military codes of ethics in the world today.
