Injured Israeli soldier proposes at Florida gala

(JTA) — An Israeli soldier who lost his arm in a Hamas terror attack proposed to his girlfriend from the stage of a Friends of the IDF event in Florida.

Cpl. Ziv Shilon proposed on Thursday in front of about 1,000 cheering people at the Friends of the Israel Defense Forces’ Greater Miami Chapter Solidarity Gala in Hollywood. His girlfriend, Adi Sitbon, said yes.

The theme of the evening was “Saluting the Women of the IDF.”

“FIDF says that our job is to protect Israel; their job is to give us the reason,” Shilon said. “I wanted to take this opportunity to ask my girlfriend, Adi, just one question. You are my hope, my rock, and my everything. I wanted to ask you, will you marry me?”

Shilon put a diamond engagement ring on Sitbon’s finger using his prosthesis.
