Do you remember Dr. Ruth from the radio and some tv talk shows? Ruth Westheimer, who has become famous in the US as a sex therapist, writer, teacher and lecturer, was also a scout and sniper. She immigrated from Germany and was German-born and a Jewish immigrant. She joined the Haganah in Jerusalem. In 1948 she was seriously wounded and wasn't able to walk for several months. She is now 88 and has published over 30 books on sex, marriage and relationships. She speaks English, German, French and Hebrew.

She is 88 so probably not as active as she was.

The Israel war of independence needed every able-bodied person but I find it unusual for a woman to be a sniper.

She was pretty special. So short they thought she would be good at snipering.

@celticeagle _ a 20/20 vision might have also come into consideration.

Dr. Ruth was quite a big deal for a time in the mid 80s.

I haven't thought of her in years - oh that face! Sniper? I would never have thought of her as a sniper (though I don't doubt she could do it!!).

I couldn't think of her as one either. She is quite a gal though.

I remember her, but didn't know all that. She was on t.v. late at night, and I would sometimes sneak to see what she had to say. I always turned it off after a few minutes.

She was quite an authority. Made a lot of sense too.
