Maya Behiri

As an Israeli living in the United States, one thing that has shaped me as a person and as an individual is my desire to go serve in the Israeli Defense Forces at the end of the year instead of going to college. “T’filah L’Tzahal” holds a special place in my heart. I remember standing on stage with my fellow HaZamirniks, singing this song not only to the Israeli Seniors at the time, but also to myself and the journey I had ahead of me. I remember feeling touched as if all of the members of HaZamir and the HaZamir community were singing to me and to my fellow soon-to-be soldiers. Tears stung my eyes, and I couldn’t help the smile that fell upon my face or the straightening of my spine in pride for my decision.
