The IDF has rescinded its approval for a wedding that was to take place in Homesh tonight (Tuesday).
Yesterday we reported that Moshe Yehuda Shwartz and Bilhah Mandelkorn, from Psagot and Shiloh respectively, were planning to hold their chuppah (wedding canopy ceremony) on the ruins of the Samarian community of Homesh. However, due to the IDF cancelling its approval, the ceremony will take place in Shevi Shomron.
Yesterday, MK Uri Ariel (Jewish Home) performed the "Priestly Blessing" over the couple, adding "Homesh will be rebuilt and reconstructed soon in our days, this young couple that will get married in Homesh is building a stone in the walls of Jerusalem, from Jerusalem to Homesh, and from Homesh to Jerusalem."
The MK concluded with the words from the Jewish daily prayers, "and may our eyes behold Your return to Zion in mercy," adding "Homesh" after Zion.
