Israeli Troops Put on Private Show for U.S. Donor, While Army Searches for Teens’ Killers

Army says the army base event, sponsored by bar-mitzvah boy’s benefactor-father, was tribute to the troops.

Members of the Israel Defense Forces’ elite counterterrorism and canine units performed drills on Tuesday for the guests of a bar-mitzvah party at the Adam base, near Modi’in. The party was held by a New York businessman, a veteran donor to various IDF units, on the occasion of his son’s bar mitzvah.
