Yakir Greenberg of Teaneck recently made aliyah to Israel, following two years of yeshiva study there. A member of Congregation Rinat Yisrael and graduate of SAR Academy and High School, he began his military service in the Israel Defense Forces in Chativat HaTzanchanim, the Paratroopers Brigade. On September 13, after six weeks of basic training, he was sworn in during a ceremony at the Western Wall, with the rest of the paratroopers drafted in August. In about five months, he will complete training and take part in another ceremony, where he will be awarded the traditional red beret of the paratroopers, after finishing a 70-plus kilometer march.
