Chief Rabbi Yona Metzger has initiated a website for worldwide prayers on behalf of the wounded, abducted and fighting Israeli soldiers. Many acts of kindness are being done on their behalf as well.
On Rabbi Metzger’s site, www.tfila.org.il, Jews from all over the world are signing up (53,106 as of writing this) to take part in a joint prayer service scheduled for this Tuesday night at 7 PM (12 noon New York time).
These days, when we are â€œbetween the straitsâ€, and in these desperate hours, our brothers Sons of Israel in the State of Israel face hard and murderous times from our enemies and those who are up to destroy us.
While in the battle front our brave soldiers in the Israeli Defense Forces risk their lives in the air and sea to repel those who turn upon us, and defend our people and the cities in Israel.
I call upon our Jewish brothers in the Diaspora, wherever they are, to pray for the well-being of our soldiers and their success this Tuesday, for the recovery of the wounded, and the return of the captives to the loving arms of their families all safe and sound. â€”Rabbi Yona Metzger
Is there a category for world-wide prayer sites at the Webbys? Hmmm better speak with Tiffany!
