Rabbinate: This Shabbat Tribute to Wounded Soldiers


Israel’s Chief Rabbinate has announced that this coming Shabbat is to be in special tribute to our soldiers of the IDF who have been wounded.  Rabbi David Lau made a call to the “Gabbaim” (plural of "gabbai", which is the man who serves is a synagogue's sexton) of all the synagogues to make sure these men had an opportunity to be called up to the Torah.

The decision was arrived at following a meeting between Chief Rabbi David Lau and the Secretary of Bnei Akiva, Danny Hirshberg.
