He grew up in a Vizhnitz Hasidic family and studied throughout his life in the institutions of Viznitz and Biala.

The thought of an army was there even before I was drafted into the first round of the Haredi Nahal, but when I heard about the organization of a new Haredi battalion, I joined the ranks and wanted to be a model of success for an Haredi soldier.

Viznitzer, who enlisted in the first round and is considered the undisputed model of the human battalion whose wigs and beard appeared on every front page of a newspaper from the Yedioth camp and even David Zoldan’s book “Haredi for Their Fate,” is a narrator who wanted to escape publicity but it haunts him. Another statistic is that Viznitzer claims that when he enlisted there was no public outcry against them at all and only when they started talking about them in the media and on the other hand did they come out against them in the ultra-Orthodox media did the problems start.

Served 3 years in the battalion, among other things, served as commander and social guide. Due to the fact that at the time there was no reserve battalion of Netzach Yehuda Viznitzer serving in the reserve in the Jordan Valley Brigade to this day.

Upon his release, he worked for the Netzach Yehuda organization as a secretary for 3 years, then established a social enterprise of Magbena with an educational place for youth when the campers operate Magbena and a restaurant nearby, all done in the pastoral landscape of East Gush Etzion at the foot of the Hordion in Sde Bar.
