Bring Them Home Safely
As our young men in Israel enter Gaza to do battle with our enemies who wish to annihilate us I am posting this prayer composed by the Chief Rabbinate asking God to protect them and make them victorious over their enemies. Please take a moment to say this prayer. The English translation is in the right margin. Click to enlarge. My hope is that politics will be put aside and that every Shul worldwide will recite this prayer (or one like it) after the weekly Torah reading this Shabbos.
