Machal: Remembering Mickey Marcus

Filmmaker Mike Nedelman attends Colonel David “Mickey” Marcus’s memorial service and speaks to the veterans who fought alongside him in the war for Israel’s independence. Click play to watch these brave men recall the defining roles they played in Israel’s formation. This short video, the second in the series, is offered as a complement to writer Jonathon Kesselman’s multi-part story “Writing in My Father’s Footsteps.” Kesselman digs through the past to uncover his father’s involvement with the Machal, the volunteer Israeli Army. Check back next week for another video by Mike Nedelman alongside the fifth installment in Kesselman’s series.
