A call by the President of the State of Israel, Shimon Peres to join in Prayer for the Welfare of our Soldiers in Captivity
On the eve of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur 5768, I call upon you, our
brothers and sisters, to join
us in Israel and pray together for the well-being and safety of the IDF soldiers in captivity.
During these ten days of repentance, each and every one of us must remember that there are sons who will not be privileged to spend the Holy Days in their homes and with their families.
Their homecoming, healthy and safe, must be a first priority on our agenda and a goal, towards which the State of Israel and every Jew
throughout the world must strive.
As in the words of Prophet Isaiah, The redeemed of the Lord shall return and come with singing unto Zion and everlasting joy shall be upon
their head; they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning
shall flee away. (Isaiah 51: 11).
May our prayer be answered speedily in our days! Amen. Zdroj: Velvyslanectvo Izraela v Bratislave
