The Maccabi Tel Aviv Youth Academy hosted Liran Baruch a former member of the Israel Defense Forces as he spoke to the Under-19 squad about his service and injury during the second Intifada.

Baruch described serving the country and the recovery and rehabilitation he had to go through following his injury. The U19’s were very moved by the story and discussion that they had with Baruch as some are already serving in the IDF and others will be joining them soon.
