Report in today`s Israeli news laments that the education system has forgotten Eli Cohen.
“Despite all our efforts to bring this to the education system, there is no awareness in school. If you ask students who was Eli Cohen, they will say he was a soccer player or a book, no more than that.”
A ceremony in honor of Eli Cohen will be held Tuesday at the President’s Residence in Jerusalem, and will be attended by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu as well as a number of former Mossad chiefs.
Numbers 13:16 These are the names of the men which Moses sent to spy out the land. And Moses called Oshea the son of Nun Jehoshua.
17 And Moses sent them to spy out the land of Canaan, and said unto them, Get you up this way southward, and go up into the mountain:
18 And see the land, what it is, and the people that dwelleth therein, whether they be strong or weak, few or many;
19 And what the land is that they dwell in, whether it be good or bad; and what cities they be that they dwell in, whether in tents, or in strong holds;
20 And what the land is, whether it be fat or lean, whether there be wood therein, or not. And be ye of good courage, and bring of the fruit of the land. Now the time was the time of the firstripe grapes.
21 So they went up, and searched the land from the wilderness of Zin unto Rehob, as men come to Hamath.
