IDF Israel Army Hativa Sheva Pin. This is an Insign of 7th Armored Brigade, known in Hebrew as "Hativa Sheva". The 7th Armored Brigade (Hebrew: Hativa Sheva) is a military formation of the Israeli Defense Force formed during the 1948 Arab-Israeli War. Conflicts involving the 7th Brigade include the Six-Day War and the Yom Kippur War. During the Battles of Latrun in 1948 the Alexandroni Brigade and the 7th together suffered 139 casualties. Its participation in the Six-Day War was under the command of the controversial Shmuel Gonen (Gorodish). Tags, pins, insignias and badges of the Israeli armed forces have been and continue to be a source of pride and comfort to Jewish people the world over, in the knowledge that today there is a military force ready to protect the Jewish people from harm, after such long suffering throughout Jewish history. This is why many people enjoy collecting these items, as each one represents the people who have carved their way to victory on the battlefronts of the middle east in order to protect the citizens of Israel. In today's day and age, we realize that the human spirit and the media are even more formidable weapons than armor, however, without this army, there would be no chance for the Jewish people to survive on the small piece of land that they occupy, and this in itself is a great miracle.
