Prayer sessions, vigils, and even protests are being held all around Israel, in hope the IDF will find the three kidnapped boys, Eyal Yifrach (19) from Elad, Naftali Frenkel (16) from Nof Ayalon and Gil-ad Sheyar (16) from Talmon.

1:00 AM Israel’s Chief Rabbi and thousands of people are at the Kotel praying for the safe return of the 3 children kidnapped by the Palestinian Authority.

    Tehilim (Psalms) 18, verse 37

    ״אֶרְדּוֹף אוֹיְבַי וְאַשִּׂיגֵם, וְלֹא אָשׁוּב עַד כַּלּוֹתָם.״

    I pursued my enemies and overtook them; I did not turn back till they were destroyed.

  2. If they are not found and released safe and sound within the next 12 hours send forces to kidnap 3k0 of the top Palestinian terrorists (some of whom may be posing as elected officials) and hold them hostage (assuming the boys are unharmed).

  3. Two wrongs do not make a ‘ right ‘. Stop the hatred and focus on G-d. HE will care for them with our prayers.

  4. I respect your position but if the nation of Israel limited its options to focusing on God and did nothing militarily, that is used force and violence against those seeking to harm it and her citizens, then it would have been wiped from the face of the earth decades ago.
