Breaking the Silence:
Because it's Time to Tell
December 6, 2006
Guest speaker: Yehuda Shaul a discharged soldier
of the Israeli army
Yehuda Shaul, a discharged soldier of the Israeli army, will be
speaking in Toronto, after a very successful
speaking tour across the United States. "Breaking the Silence,
because it's time to tell!" will be held on Thursday December
7, 2006 at 7:30 p.m. at The Winchevsky Centre, 585 Cranbrooke
Avenue (5 blocks north of Lawrence, east off Bathurst) and Monday
December 11, 2006, at The Society of Friends' House,
60 Lowther Avenue (2 blocks north of Bloor just east of Bedford
Road, at 7:30 p.m.
Born in Jerusalem, the son of an American father and Canadian-born
mother, Yehuda Shaul immigrated to Israel in 1973, the year of the
Yom Kippur war. Much like every other male in Israel, he was drafted
into the army at the age of 18. During 14 months of service in Hebron,
Yehuda could not bear the moral erosion he saw in himself and his
comrades. Now the ultra-Orthodox 24-year-old has organized an exhibit
of soldiers' photographs to bring the reality of the territories
"We are discharged soldiers who have decided not to keep silent.
We all served in the territories. Some served in Gaza, some in Hebron,
some in Bethlehem... we all manned checkpoints, participated in
patrols and arrests and took part in the war against 'terror'...
So far, hundreds of discharged combat soldiers have decided to break
the silence and every day more people follow. During our combat
service we've handled many different missions. We have one mission
left: to talk, tell and not keep anything hidden."
