Arik Weinstein Now, Wiki, Age - Bar Refaeli ex-husband

Arik Weinstein tied knot with Bar Refaeli, an Israeli model, television host, businesswoman and actress. In 2007, the YnetNews reported that Refaeli had evaded the draft by marrying family-acquaintance Arik Weinstein in 2003, and divorcing him soon afterwards.

Military service in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) is mandatory in Israel for unmarried secular Jewish women over the age of 18.


The Israeli Forum for the Promotion of Equal Share in the Burden threatened to boycott the Israeli fashion chain Fox if they hired her. The two sides reached a compromise in which Refaeli agreed to visit injured IDF soldiers whenever she was in Israel, and actively encourage army enlistment.

Refaeli later said,

"I don't regret not enlisting, because it paid off big time. That's just the way it is: celebrities have other needs. I hope my case has influenced the army."

She also said:

"Israel or Uganda, what difference does it make? It makes no difference to me. Why is it good to die for our country? What, isn't it better to live in New York? Why should 18-year-old kids have to die? It's dumb that people have to die so that I can live in Israel."

Esti Ginzburg, another Israeli model, spoke out in 2009 in favour of conscription and criticised Refaeli for avoiding military duty. Two years later, in May of 2011, Refaeli graced the cover of the war-themed Italian edition of GQ. IDF Brigadier General Yoav Mordechai again brought up Refaeli's refusal to serve in 2013 when he criticised the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for using her in an advertising. Mordechai said that sending a "negative message" to Israeli society by using Refaeli as a "official representative of Israel" was wrong.


Refaeli often used her social media accounts in 2014 to show support for Israeli residents fighting in the Israeli Army during Operation Protective Edge, including sharing photos of herself with happy Israeli troops.
