The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2019


Or Na’aman

Israel Defense Forces captain

Israel Defense Forces Capt. Or Na’aman has been recognized for her excellent command of the air force battalion that intercepted Syrian aircraft over the Golan Heights in 2018. Na’aman led the Patriot missile battery that shot down a Syrian drone that penetrated some six miles into Israeli airspace. She was responsible for intercepting a Syrian fighter jet that breached Israeli airspace a couple of weeks later. Israel Air Force commander Maj.-Gen. Amikam Norkin, in praising Na’aman’s abilities, said, “You both learned and taught your soldiers how to perform under pressure and led them to a high level of operational readiness. You not only were successful in the mission, but gained the trust and confidence of your commanders and subordinates.” (Photo: IDF)
