Kabbalist Sails to IDF Ship to Ask Soldiers to Say ‘Shema Yisrael’ [video]

Thursday, November 19th, 2015

Kabbalist Rabbi Dov Kook of Tiberias visited Eilat this week and sailed in a boat to reach an IDF Navy ship to encourage soldiers to say “Shema Yisrael” but almost landed in the sea.

The Hareidi website Kikar Shabbat reported that Rabbi Kook spoke with officials of the southern tourist city as part of a campaign to persuade Jews to say the prayer, recited three times daily in prayers and before going to sleep at night.

After visiting the maritime observatory in Eilat, Rabbi Kook sailed in a boat towards a Navy ship. As seen in the video in the link here, he began to lose his footing while trying to board the ship as others told him, “Rabbi, be careful.”

He settled for remaining on the boat and shouting out loud, “Say Shema Yisrael. This is most important. You can say it now but especially at night.”

The soldiers promised they would, and the rabbi sailed back to Eilat.

Monday, June 8th, 2015

Ten IDF naval officers have moved to Germany to oversee the construction of four new warships that will form the basis of protecting Israel’s offshore gas platforms, according to a report in The Marker.

The deal with Germany, to build the four ships, was signed last month, and will cost 1.8 billion shekels. The IDF will begin to receive the ships in 5 years.

Until then, the IDF Navy will continue to use existing ships to protect the gas platforms.

Germany will provide all the ship’s weapons and infrastructure, but the their installation and assembly will be done by Israelis.

The IDF officers will oversea the construction and learn the systems inside and out, including how to operate and maintain them, forming a nucleus for the long term support of the ships, which are expected to be in service for 30 years after receipt.

There are other IDF naval soldier who will join the officers.
