Egert, who is being endorsed by Yeshiva Pirchei Shoshanim of Lakewood, took his oath at McGuire Air Force Base surrounded by family and friends.

Dovid is soon to be joined by his twin brother Shalom Egert. Both men, who are also EMTs, currently work for the Lakewood Township for nearly 3 years.

Dovid is a Talmid of Rabbi Yerucham Shain and a graduate of the Adelphia Yeshiva.

After fulfilling his degree requirements and Semicha at Yeshiva Pirchei Shoshanim, Dovid will be seeking active duty status in the Air Force.
