Chief Rabbis: Rain Has Fallen, Now Say Thank You


Israel's two Chief Rabbis issued a call on Wednesday to recite a special prayer of thanks for the rains that have fallen over most of the country. Precipitation is expected to increse over the weekend with snow predicted. 

The Chief rabbis called for those attending synagogue and public prayer gatherings to issue "praise and thanksgiving to G-d for opening the gates of heaven and receiving our prayers..." Fears of a drought this year prompted calls to for public prayer gatherings earlier this month.
