Research also has linked PTSD to increases in parenting stress, problematic communication patterns between service members and their spouses/partners, lower parental satisfaction, and difficult parenting at reintegration (Berz, Taft, Watkins, & Monson, 2008; Cohen, Zerach, & Solomon, 2011; Lambert, Hasbun, Engh, & Holzer, 2016).
The avoidance symptom of PTSD appears to be particularly problematic for parenting among veteran fathers (Davidson and Mellor, 2001; Evans, McHugh, Hopwood, & Watt, 2003; Solomon, Debby-Aharon, Zerach, & Horesh, 2011) and Cohen, Zerach and Solomon (2011) found that attachment-avoidance moderates the effects of PTSD on parent functioning in a sample of Isreali veterans of the first Lebanon war.

Good examples in this regard are Prime Minister Ben-Gurion "and the chairman of the Constitution Committee of the Provisional State Council (1948-49), Knesset member Zerach Warhaftig; at first, they supported the enactment of a constitution, but, later on, they strongly opposed its enactment and finally argued that it was already enacted.
But see DK (1950) 729-30 (Knesset member Zerach Warhaftig); DK (1950) 727 (Knesset member David Bar-Rav-Hay).
But see DK (1950) 731 (Knesset member Zerach Warhaftig) (arguing that Israel should not enact a constitution in order to educate future generations).
Zerach Wahrhaftig's history as a Jew who rescued Jews is one of a growing compilation of histories collected by the Jerusalem-based Committee on Jews who Rescued Jews in the Holocaust.
