Shavua tov.

B”H Shabbat was quiet here in TRLEOOB, but a number of our good friends and neighbors have sons who are now fighting in Gaza.

Our Rav noted that one should recite Tehillim and include the following in one’s prayers:

אחינו כל בית ישראל הנתונים בצרה ובשביה העומדים בין בים ובין ביבשה המקום ירחם עליהם ויצאם מצרה לרוחה ומאפלה לאורה ומשעבוד לגאולה השתא בעגלא ובזמן קריב ונאמר אמן

(Translation available upon request.)

Our prayers are for the safety and well being of all our brave soldiers as well as our beleaguered brothers and sisters in the South. May the coming week be one of besurot tovot, yeshu’ot, and nechamot (good tidings, salvation, and consolation).


  1. My thoughts and prayers go to your friends and neighbors as well as their children obviously.

  2. Ilana-Davita - IMHO, the J-Blogosphere's support for Israel is an incredible expression of "kol Yisrael arevim zeh lazeh." We are all connected.
