Rabbi Ovadia Yosef: Add Chosen Prayers till War's End


Former Sephardic Chief Rabbi and spiritual advisor of the Shas party, Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, has asked the Jewish world to add Psalm 83 to the Sabbath prayers, to be said after opening the Holy Ark in the morning prayers, for the safety of Israel's soldiers and civilians.

Rabbi Yosef said on Friday that the Avinu Malkenu prayer, which is recited during the Ten Days of Repentance and on fast days, should be said at the end of the morning prayers every day until the end of Operation Pillar of Defense.
