A special prayer session will be held at the Kotel on Sunday at 3:30 PM.
After a meeting on Thursday between Chief Rabbi Shlomo Amar and Rav Ovadia Yosef, it was decided that a special public prayer session will be held to pray for strengthening the citizens of Israel’s south and the IDF soldiers.
Rav Amar said, “I call upon the people of Israel from all ends of the religious spectrum to cry and pray for mercy in light of the difficult events that has befallen us in recent times. Am Israel Chai, and our success depends on unity and faith. I send a blessing of healing to all the wounded, and my condolences to the families of the victims, our duties at this time to strengthen the residents of the South and our hero soldiers with our prayers.”
