‘Iron Dome’ Synagogue for Soldiers

Soldiers manning the Iron Dome missile defense system in Israel’s south will be able to pray more comfortably beginning this week thanks to a mobile synagogue. The synagogue was inaugurated Wednesday, and includes prayer books and other holy items.

The synagogue is currently in use at an Iron Dome installation near Ashkelon. The army hopes to provide a similar setup at other Iron Dome installations across the south.
