At the age of nineteen, Leibel Mangel left his home and family in Cincinnati, Ohio to enlist in the Israel Defense Forces as a lone soldier. As the son of a Rabbi and the grandson of one of the youngest survivors of Auschwitz - serving in the IDF was not a matter of if, but rather when. Serving in an elite anti-terror unit, Leibel took part in numerous high profile operations. Leibel has used his story and experiences to continue his service by fighting for Israel in both mainstream and social media and in communities and on college campuses around the world. Leibel is also the recipient of a 2017 Jewish People's Choice Award.
